A waiting room most commonly is an area of an office, a practice, or a parlour where people are seated while waiting for their appointment. Waiting rooms can project engagement and care, commercial or administrative interest, neglect, hope, or misery. Designed to provide distraction, comfort, or access to information, they often end up frustrating, infuriating the visitor, becoming a materialized manifestation of time stretched, whiled away, annihilated. The curious atmosphere of these interiors seems to soak up the time waited, spent, lost within them.
This group exhibition focuses on empty waiting rooms and the notion of waiting in the visual realm, displaying photographic works and video art.
