Working in video and photography and with a strong performance background, Anne Scott Wilson’s oeuvre is an exploration into memory, motion and imagination. Drawing on anachronistic ballet training she uses her own body as an experimental site. Her practice considers the relationship between death and embodiment, light and motion and the yearning for something more. She has received several grants from the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Victoria, artists and writers’ residency Can Serrat Barcelona, Australian National University Ethnographic Film Festival Residency, Italy. Her work has been selected as finalist for several national photographic and visual art prizes including emerging artist awards.
Her work is held in public and private collections in Australia and overseas. Until 2023 she was represented by Conny Dietzschold Gallery in Sydney, Hong Kong and Cologne following Conny's passing. She is a Lecturer at Deakin University in Visual Art and Photography and sustains an ongoing practice and research profile.
Her moving image work has been exhibited at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Athens Film Festival and Melbourne Urban Screens Festival. She has been a finalist in the Bowness Photography Prize and the Substation Contemporary Art Prize, the Blake Prize and the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Prize. She is the winner of the Carstairs Bundanon artist residency. Asialink and Experimenta have curated her work in several international exhibitions including Asia Pacific Biennal ‘Gravity’ in Singapore and 'Selectively Revealed' touring Asia and the 40th Anniversary of ARS Electronica in Linz Austria. She has been selected as a guest curator at Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne and continues to devise exhibitions including ‘Finitude’ at University of Tasmania in 2015 and 'Sounding Histories' at the Seafarers Mission, Melbourne 2017. She has collaborated with ARS Electronica and the Public Art Commission.
