Lane Timothy Speidel is a Philadelphia-based artist, curator, member of Vox Populi Gallery, and graduate of Tyler School of Art. They play with writing, sculpture, fiber, music, and painting to try to place themselves in the world. These different methods patchwork in freaky, funny, and sad installations, with seams visible. They are a white Jewish transexual disabled fag. They can’t sleep or are sleeping too much. They create sculptures and clothing from trash by necessity but also aesthetic interest. Their writing practice began as love songs to friends, and now it's poetry, music, plays, and sci-fi. Lane has been an artist in residence at Flux Factory and TPAIR. They have self-published many zines, and their writing has been in Ginger Zine, Stone Fruit, Art Blog, Gay Wicked Ways, and Title Magazine. Their artwork has been shown at Vox Populi Gallery, Space 1026, Unrequited Leisure, Flux Factory, and Changes Gallery. They know that our job is to upend all systems that do not make possible joy, family, community, and celebration. They use their writing to look out of the keyhole of our locked capitalist reality, one hand always feeling for the key.
