Or William’s Portfolio

“I use performance, moving image and new media to criticise the notion of the “perfect” female body.” Or Williams

Through this digital series Dystopia of the Mind, Or Williams will discuss the unspoken reality that is imposed upon the female artist-mother-wife-housewife, and the ways she found to continue creating outside of her studio using new media’s most accessible tools.

While her pre-pandemic practice focused on her physical state and revolved around the perfection of the female body with a disability; this new volume of work, emerged during the COVID-19, depicts the dialogue between technology and mind. The space between the analogue and technology-filled with glitched images channels the emotional rather than the physical, by doing so, it becomes free from physical boundaries and social conventions.
