Astrid Lloyd (Canada) is an interdisciplinary artist and her work incorporates visual, performing and architectural arts in an embodied research practice that has spanned over a decade. Most notably, The Superwoman Project; A Novel in Four Costumes (TSP) includes a palette of characters who tackle some of the big questions of contemporary feminism and philosophy. How do women find freedom now? How does the unreal become real? Largely based in textile materials and methods, Lloyd constructs costumes, performances and installations which have been presented in Spain, France and major Canadian cities.Astrid holds a BA in Political Studies and a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Saskatchewan, and a MFA in Fibres and Material Practices from Concordia University. She is a Canada Graduate Scholar through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and a repeat grant recipient through the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
