Lucien Durey and Katie Kozak: Baba's House


 Lucien Durey and Katie Kozak: Baba's House

Copyright 2014 the artists and authors
Revised edition with additional material published by Dunlop Art Gallery and HAUNT 2015


In fall 2012, artists Lucien Durey and Katie Kozak moved to the northern Saskatchewan town of Creighton to take up a self-directed residency in the home of Kozak's Ukrainian-Canadian grandmother, Sophie Ostrowski. During this time, they produced scanned compositions from materials found in Ostrowski's home, producing works with surprising depth and formal restraint. Thoughtful, emotionally resonant, and quietly funny, the resulting collection of works form a loving portrait of this specific individual. Ostrowski's story, however, evokes commonly shared Saskatchewan experiences of rural prairie life and homesteading, the hybridization of second-generation Canadian identities, family history, and intergenerational friendship and exchange.
