Lucien Durey is a queer artist, writer and singer. He is the son of Americans who immigrated to Northern Saskatchewan in the 1970s. He now lives and works in Vancouver on the unceded ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh Nations. His mixed media and performance-based practice engages with found objects, photographs, sounds, and place. His relationship to material is a maternal trait, influenced by his mother’s reverence for keepsakes and souvenirs.
