Wednesday Lupypciw is from Calgary, Alberta, where she pursues a video and performance art practice. To make money she is a part-time maid. She also maintains a concurrent practice in textiles — weaving, machine knitting, embroidery and crochet — but this is done mostly while procrastinating on other, larger projects. The performance art collective LIDS, or the Ladies Invitational Deadbeat Society, a loosely knit group of purposefully lazy womenfolk, is one of those projects. She is a Fibre program graduate from the Alberta College of Art + Design, and has worked and exhibited in various artist-run spaces throughout Canada including the Textile Museum of Canada, The Art Gallery Of Alberta, The Banff Centre, The Klondike Institution for Arts and Culture, TRUCK and Stride galleries in Calgary, Harbourfront and Nuit Blanche in Toronto, and EMMEDIA (also in Calgary).
