Questioning the requirements of spaces for art and for art residency, Baba's House is a yearlong initiative exploring cultural experience and objecthood through the home of 80 year old Sophie Ostrowski, in Creighton, Saskatchewan. For the period of September 2012 to August 2013, Ostrowski has temporarily vacated her home, allowing for the house to be repurposed as an artist's residence, and as a space for research and creation. As the entity Baba’s House, Lucien Durey and Katie Kozak have hosted a number of arts related events to date, with further exhibitions in the home planned for Summer of 2013. The project will culminate with an exhibition by the duo at Regina’s Dunlop Art Gallery in January of 2014.

Katie Kozak is a Creighton, Saskatchewan artist of Métis and Ukrainian descent, whose work is a thoughtful blend of visual art and science. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Victoria and attended Emily Carr University of Art and Design from 2009 through 2012. She has exhibited artworks locally and in Vancouver, BC.

Lucien Durey is a visual artist and singer working in Saskatchewan and Vancouver. Drawing from personal and popular experience, his practice explores themes of authenticity and compensation through performance, assemblage/installation, and digital processes. Durey holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design and will begin studies towards an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studies at SFU School for the Contemporary Arts in September of 2013. He has exhibited in Saskatchewan, Vancouver, Portland and New York.
