Abstract (English)

"In fall 2012, artists Lucien Durey and Katie Kozak moved to the town of Creighton Saskatchewan (population: 1500), to take up a unique and 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: family photographs, handwritten recipes and notes, Ostrowski's intricate pysanky and tender homemade perogies, houseplants and garden vegetables, craft supplies, collectable salt and pepper shakers, and all manner of ephemera were arranged on the flatbed scanner, producing works with surprising depth and formal restraint. Thoughtful, emotionally resonant, and quietly funny, the work importantly includes Ostrowski's voice: the project developed with her consent, commentary, and involvement, and the resulting collection of works forms 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." -- Publisher's website.
