Documentaric insight into a 6th grade project at Gellerup, Aarhus. Although this part of the town is considered as a so called ghetto area the project revealed extended social resources and skills among the participating young girls.
The artists Grete Aagaard and Tanja Nellemann worked together with the class in spring 2010. Text and ornaments covered almost 400 meters of a sidewalk. The project could be seen three or four days in May until the rain washed away the work.
With my digital camera I spontaneously filmed the row of decorated slabs, while I moved in and out between cyclists and pedestrians. The film covers a wide range of different shots from the project’s completion. The involved girls attentively read the proverbs and they gave feedback on the editing.
