Suspended Agency (Trailer) (2019)

1 min 13 sec4 channel installation / Digital Video / Black & White / Sound

Shot and edited over the past three years in Dagenham - a London Borough which voted overwhelmingly for Brexit - Suspended Agency follows a small cast of individuals occupying the margins of the city. Walking through underpasses, standing by the highway, picking up discarded trash that may suggest some portent or sign, each character appears to inhabit a state of paralysis. Why are they here? Why can’t they move on? What is real and what is imagined?
