Jennie Savage

Jennie Savage lives and works in Cardiff, Wales

Jennie Savage works in the place between public spaces, town planning, constructed landscapes and the human story, lived lives and personal narratives connected to those sites and the dialogue between meta-narratives and the phenomena of the everyday.

Working through a process that uses archiving and intervention, she seeks to map the other life of a place or community in order to reveal a complex situation, a micro-structure or simply an unheard voice. Using methods associated with documentary practice, traditions of story telling, historical research, psycho-geography and imagined other lives, the work adopts a multifaceted approach to the discovery and representation of a place.
