Lotte received Project Development Bursary in 2018. She is developing her practice through creating a site-specific work for the Fish House, near Glastonbury for Art Weeks Festival 2019.
Lotte Scott was born in London in 1990 and grew up in Somerset. She studied BA Art Practice at Goldsmiths University and MFA Sculpture at the Slade School of Art. She now lives in Frome. Since completing her Masters in 2017, Lotte has taken part in a residency at the Sidney Nolan Trust and been selected for group exhibitions such as “Lexis Over Land” at the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens Gallery, Penzance and “Liquid Land” at the Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge. In March 2018 her first solo show, “The Fields are Seas”, was exhibited at OUTPOST gallery in Norwich.
This bursary will support the research and development of “A Long Hundred”, an installation at the Abbot’s Fish House in Meare for SAW Festival 2019. Having spent the last 6 years researching the peat moors of the Somerset Levels, I will create a new series of torrified, wooden sculptures and large peat pigment drawings to exhibit in the Fish House. The project will explore the prehistoric archaeology and history of peat cutting in the Avalon Marshes, working in collaboration with Natural England and English Heritage.
