Katie Kozak

KATIE KOZAK is a queer artist of Métis and Ukrainian settler descent. She grew up in Denare Beach, Saskatchewan. Her family is from the Red River Métis communities of St. François Xavier and Boggy Creek, Manitoba. Her visual art practice is centered on connectivity to land, relationship, ritual, and traces. She begins her process by spending contemplative time in nature, with other living beings. Being with the trees and water reminds her of her father. She has become aware that her values for making and being are deeply tied to him and processing his loss. She believes the body is a vessel of imprinted knowledge, even when unacknowledged. Through ritual and deepening connection to the land, she has experienced the body revealing a buried past.
