Wednesday Lupypciw is from Calgary, Alberta, where she pursues chaotically overlapping video and performance art practices. To make money she is a part-time maid and physical labourer. 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 purposefully lazy Feminist art and activist collective LIDS, or the Ladies Invitational Deadbeat Society, is one of those projects. The aesthetic output from all of these things is different, but the politics are the same: queer, pluralistic, fairly compensated, critical.
Lupypciw is a Fibre programme graduate from the Alberta College of Art + Design, and has worked and exhibited in various 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 in Calgary, the Feminist Art Gallery and FADO Performance Art in Toronto, Centre SKOL and La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse in Montréal, and EMMEDIA (also in Calgary).
