Prologue

Frances Scott works with moving image, presented through screenings, installations, events and publications. Her work often considers material that exists around the periphery of the cinematic production and its apparatus, proposing that a film might be composed of its metonymic fragments.

Recent exhibitions and screenings include: Tate St Ives (2018, forthcoming); Annely Juda Fine Art with The Russian Club, London (2018); CloseUp Film Centre, London (2018); Yorkshire Sculpture Park (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). Since 2012 her practice has included CATALOG, a collaborative project with Joyce Cronin. Frances was recipient of the Stuart Croft Foundation Moving Image Award (2017), and graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art (2003) and Wimbledon College of Art (2010). She is currently working on research towards a long-form film commissioned by TACO!, a new project space in Thamesmead, South London, and a solo presentation of Diviner (2017) with The Bower, London due to open 2018.
