THE ARCHIVE AT WORK (2013)

HD colour video with sound 4'34"

A video tour of the Baring archive and collection at ING Bank in the City of London in which I lipsync to different employees talking about their everyday encounters with various artefacts on display. Rather than presenting a sigular historial account I literally inhabit multiple perspectives to present an alternative narrative of the institution. Voices include those of a corporate banker, the archivist, the butler, and staff responsible for security, cleaning and maintenance.
