Frances Scott is an artist and filmmaker whose work has been presented through screenings, installations, events and publications. Within her practice she considers narratives and histories that exist at the periphery of the cinematic production and its apparatus, proposing non-linear films composed of their metonymic fragments. Her process is associative, connecting diverse materials to create intricate scenarios, scripted and improvised. Projects develop through extensive periods of research, drawing on physical and online archives and collections. Frances often works with other specialists, groups and publics; polymer chemists, historians, hypnotists, lip-readers, astrologers, architects, composers, night-shift taxi drivers and Mah Jong players.

Selected recent exhibitions and screenings include: 57th New York Film Festival, Lincoln Center, New York (2019); Close Up Film Centre, 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); Yorkshire Sculpture Park with Art Licks (2017); Whitechapel Gallery (2017); South West Film & Television Archive, Plymouth (2017); Focal Point Gallery, Southend (2016); and ‘Selected III' videoclub / FLAMIN screenings in USA including Anthology Film Archives, New York, Seattle International Film Festival, and LA Film Forum, Los Angeles (2014).

Frances was recipient of the Stuart Croft Foundation Moving Image Award (2017), and is currently working on research towards 'Wendy', a film commissioned by TACO! (Thamesmead Arts and Culture Office), London. ‘Wendy’ is a speculative portrait and filmic fan-letter, informed by composer and musician Wendy Carlos - self-described as “The Original Synth”.
