The Body Remembers ,
Co-workers & Funding
Spanning 22 years and three continents, the performance, video and digital media work made by Jill Scott coalesces at points that are both corporeal and mechanistic. The differing themes and effects of each work are supported by a range of interests that extend across the breadth of her oeuvre.The modular nature of Scott's career to date, with its chronological divisions that separate into media categories (performance, video and digital), conceals the constant presence of notions of body, memory, history and technology. In her work, some or all of these concepts are brought together at different times.
