Linda Yun's studio practice begins with careful observation of often un-noticed, subtle passing details of our day to day experience. Her work utilizes both material and environment in order to emphasize the subtle beauty and lyrical ephemerality of these temporal fragments. The notions of wonder and awe found in Yun's affective installations are made more surprising by her use of common materials and purposefully humble construction. By focusing on the moments that drag us in and hold us suspended, Yun's installation for Lease Agreement, wanting/waiting, acts as an observation to our very human relationship to time.

The reception for wanting/waiting will be held on Saturday, March 1, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Lease Agreement, 3718 Ellerslie Ave, Baltimore, Maryland. The exhibition runs from March 1 - 23. Gallery hours are Wednesdays, 4:00pm until 8:00pm, or by appointment. Special open hours will be on Friday, March 7, from 4:00pm - 8:00pm as a satellite event for the Print and Multiples Fair. Appointments can be requested by contacting Lease Agreement at
