PROLOGUE >

Frances Scott (b. 1981, Barrow-in-Furness) is a London-based artist working with moving image. Her work considers the narratives and histories at the periphery of cinematic production and its apparatus, to produce films composed of their metonymic fragments. Her projects are often made in exchange with other specialists, groups and publics, and developed through research using online and physical archives and collections. She associates and composites diverse materials, analogue and digital film media, to create intricate scenarios that are both scripted and improvised.

Her film work, informed by this collaborative and research-led process, takes multiple forms, through exhibitions to installations, screenings, events, broadcasts and publications, including presentations at: 'Projections',57th New York Film Festival; New York [2019]; The Institute of Making, University College London [2019]; 'Edge of Frame', London International Animation Festival, Close Up Film Centre [2019]; Nunnery Gallery, London [2019]; Het Bos, Antwerp, Belgium [2018]; The Bower, London [2018]; Tate St Ives [2018]; Annely Juda Fine Art with The Russian Club, London [2018]; CloseUp Film Centre, London [2018]; Yorkshire Sculpture Park with Art Licks [2017]; Phoenix Leicester [2017]; Whitechapel Gallery [with Phil Coy] [2017]; Peninsula Arts and South West Film & Television Archive, Plymouth [2017]; Focal Point Gallery, Southend [2016]; ‘London Open’ triennial, Whitechapel Gallery [2015]; and ‘Selected III’ videoclub / FLAMIN screenings in the USA including Anthology Film Archives, New York, Seattle International Film Festival, and LA Film Forum [2014], and in the UK [2013].

Between 2012 - 2018 her practice included CATALOG, a collaborative project with Joyce Cronin. Frances was recipient of the Stuart Croft Foundation Moving Image Award [2017], and associate artist at the Moving Image Research Centre [MIRC], University of East London [2018-2019]. She graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art [2003] and Wimbledon College of Art [2010].

Frances is currently working on research towards 'Wendy', a film commissioned by TACO! [Thamesmead Arts and Culture Office), London, for a solo exhibition and publication in 2021. Her films are distributed by LUX.
