Louise Orwin


Louise Orwin is a live artist, researcher, writer and performer. Her work spans the live and the recorded with incarnations in performance, video and photography. She is preoccupied with liveness, awkwardness, femininity and masochism – but above all, she likes to have fun.

Pretty Ugly

This is about you rating me based solely on my looks. Fascinated and unnerved by the global trend of young girls posting YouTube videos asking viewers to rate their attractiveness, performance artist Louise Orwin decided to try it out for herself. This project is a result of that experience investigating ideas about self-image fractured through social media and the internet in a world where looks are seemingly everything.
