This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Francis summers is a London based artist who works with installation, incorporating elements of video, sound and still image. His primary concerns are with the representations of identity in the media and their potential displacement through strategies of appropriation, counter repetition, disarticulation and recomposition. Summers is an artist and committee member of the collectively organized artist-run gallery Five Years. He is also subject leader of MA photography UCA Rochester. He is committed to questioning relations between appropriation and enjoyment. Summers videos explore a form of plunderphonic dissonance. Using scrambling strategies that verge on nihilistic psychedelia, he makes work that produces a kind of cultural-feedback-machine. Summers has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally, recent exhibitions include Research Photography 2013, Royal College of Art, Battersea, Dyson Building, UK (2013); Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network and videoclub present: ‘Selected’, Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK (2012); So Much For Free School, Five Years, London, UK (2010).
