Artist Frances Scott was part of the Gunnie Moberg & Margaret Tait residency (a partnership with Orkney Library & Archive initiated by Stills Gallery, Edinburgh).

Work made during the residency is in her new book Undertow, published by Another Place Press. The book is launched today at 3pm at the Pier Arts Centre, Stromness.

Frances commented that the research residency in Orkney had a big impact on her project and pushed it further along.

Link to the book here.

Undertow documents the changing relationship between an islander and her home, as Frances Scott walks the coastlines of Orkney. Over the course of two years, section by section, she walked the circumference of the Mainland, and is now walking the coasts of the North and South Isles, something which could take a lifetime to complete.

Undertow is published by Another Place Press, February 2020. Limited Edition of 300.
