LESIA MARUSCHAK creates mobile memory spaces. Born in 1961 in Saskatchewan she spent her childhood on the Canadian prairies, land settled by her ancestors in 1874. In the mid-1970s she first picked up a camera, to which she did not return until 2016 when a diagnosis of leukaemia led her to change her life’s direction and commit to making art.
Working across the still and moving image, sculpture and painting, Maruschak’s work – a complex exploration of memory and sensual expression – informs and expands what it means to create. In just three years of practice her works have been collected by museums, and exhibited in solo and group photographic exhibitions worldwide. Her most recent book MARIA received the International Arsenal Book Festival’s Grand Prix (2019, Kyiv). Maruschak collaborates with recognized international memory museums, lectures at international conferences such as FORMAT 19 University of Derby (2019) and makes special guest appearances at photo festivals including PhotoVenezia (2018) and Palm Springs Photo Festival (2017).
Maruschak holds a MA in Ethnography and an MBA in International Management. She spends her time between Alvena and Ottawa, Canada.
