Counterslip from jennie savage on Vimeo.
The description of a building site. Counterslip narrates the history of a site in relation to its current state of flux and becoming. This lens articulates something tenuous or impermanent. It makes visible a number of processes and interrelations, power structures, heirachies. Histories that happened here; slavery, industrialisation, the trajectory of the market place- people selling 'stuff' from a stall, through to the present market where the site itself represents the narratives of global capitalism. Place commodified.
The film was commissioned by Gingko.
