Don Miller: Saturn and Cronus

In the build of up to CAFKA.14 Stephen Litt approached CAFKA about the possibility of working with two derelict houses on David Street in Kitchener. The CAFKA Program Committee brought Shelburne, Ontario artist Don Miller to Kitchener to consider the possiblities. The condemned houses, which were at one time single family homes, had in recent years been converted into rooming houses and had fallen into considerable disrepair. It was immediately clear that we would not be able to develop a project utilizing the buiilding's interiors. An agreement with the developer Stephen Litt allowed CAFKA to appropriate the houses through the end of the 2014 biennial exhibition, after which time the houses would be demolished. Don Miller decided to paint one black and one white, and call the project Saturn and Cronus.
