Dr Anne Scott Wilson has worked extensively nationally and internationally. Originally trained as a dancer working with the Queensland Ballet Company her interest in performance through dance as a time-based medium is now translated across the mediums of performative photography, video and installation.
Underpinning this development is movement. This can be perhaps seen as movement of elements as they collide and connect. It could be seen as the movement that occurs when one force penetrates or is dissolved from one state to another. In whatever way one perceives the entry and exit, points of emergence are present. Anne's quest is deeply philosophic, aesthetic, precise and through this, a search for something hard to pin down.
Anne plays with visual perception as a means, in this work to dissolve and illuminate the binary structure of private and public, of inside and outside, calling our awareness to accomodate both states simultaneously. For both exist as aspects of the same metaphor, but seen from different points of view. In other words these states of perceptual space exist at the same time in the same place but are usually experienced as one or the other. Anne brings them together, visible for all to see. I think this is a profound illumination that can be applied to anything we know is there but cannot or do not want to acknowledge. In this understanding Anne's work is deeply humane.
From another perspective Anne Scott Wilson manages to pinpoint the entry or the moment where the dualities become divided. She feels her way towards this opening enabling a portal to both sides of an equation.
Anne's practice is represented by Conny Dietzschold Gallery in Sydney, Hong Kong and Cologne. Her work is collected by public and private institutions and she holds a PhD from Monash University and a position as lecturer in photography and visual art at Deakin University in the school of Art and Performance. She has curated several exhibitions including Sounding Histories at the Mission to Seafarers, Victoria in 2017 and On the Line at Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne. Anne's practice includes writing which has recently been published in Australian and International Journals.
