Chun's video poems, short films, drawings, sculptures and installations ruminate on language, translation, and historiography. Traversing found institutional narratives, documents, and imprints of linguistic imperialism as a site for (mis)translation, rupture, and abstraction, Chun's work uncovers new immersive poetics for non-linear passages of meaning, time, and untranslatability.
