WHAT YOU MAY CALL
Lucien Durey & Katie Kozak

JUNE 7 to 29, 2013

NorVA Centre
177 Green St
Flin Flon

What You May Call is a group of compositions made from materials sourced from the Creighton, Saskatchewan home of Katie Kozak’s Ukrainian Canadian grandmother, Sophie Ostrowski, where the artists have taken up a yearlong residency. For the period of September 2012 to August 2013, Ostrowski has vacated her home, allowing for the house to be repurposed as an artist’s residence, and as a space for research and creation. The entity Baba’s House has hosted a number of arts related events to date, with further exhibitions in the home planned for late June. The project will culminate with an exhibition at Regina’s Dunlop Art Gallery in January of 2014. Questioning the requirements of spaces for art and for art residency, the exhibition, titled Baba’s House, will feature works generated from materials sourced on location in the home.

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 at Lucky’s Gallery in Vancouver, BC.

Lucien Durey is a visual artist and singer working in Saskatchewan and Vancouver. The son of American expatriates in prairie Canada and Nunavut, Durey has worked with performance, assemblage/installation, and digital processes to develop personal and enigmatic representations of regional selfhood. He 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.
