You Can't See Me For Looking
Louise Colebourn is a visual artist whose practice explores the role of photography in relation to performance art. Her current work, 'You Can't See Me For Looking', explores the ritual of masking true identity, creating a false personality and emotional response, designed to act as a barrier concealing the true self. The work looks retrospectively at the way Louise coped with her own experiences, using elements of humour and discomfort to create a performance that shows the restrictive nature of masking truth. Drawing inspiration from early action painting and performance art, Louise layered materials to act as a physical barrier that developed over the duration of the performance. These are video stills taken from the documentation of her performance.
