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 lazy over-performance art collective LIDS, or the Ladies Invitational Deadbeat Society, is one of those projects. She is a Fibre programme graduate from the Alberta College of Art + Design, and has worked and exhibited in various artist-run spaces throughout Canada.
