Maruschak descends from pioneers who came to Canada from Ukraine in 1897, paying a $10 filing fee for 160 acres of land. KRAINA, Ukrainian for land, gives form to an “autonomous and universal reality” where time, identity, history, and abstract spiritual concepts are blurred. The fragility of human existence, the notion of identity in the context of global immigration, and the role of the photograph in spurring an inquiry by the seer are central to KRAINA.
