The Wait Without Waiting

2 channel HD video with sound

90 seconds (in loop)


At first glance, Chun’s two-channel video The Wait Without Waiting appears as typical nocturnal scenes by the petrol station with the occasional hum of passing traffic. It is upon closer view that one notices the oncoming vehicles, solely of taxis—unfailingly available on one screen, and always unavailable on the other that—the artist’s playful wit emerges, in the composition of these both impossible scenes and scenarios.
