Spanning video, installation, film, sculpture, drawing, and sound, Chun's work explores language, translation, historiography, and inherited lyrics. Working with found institutional narratives and documents as a site of departure, Chun’s practice (mis)translates and uncovers new immersive poetics. Chun's work meditates on linguistic ruptures, diasporic and non-linear passages of meaning, time, and untranslatability.
