The Wait, 2009. Video Still


The Wait is a stop motion animation by artist Clare Rae. Constructed from a string of photographic stills, The Wait is one of a series of videos that explore female identity via a persona that appears continuously throughout her work. In The Wait, Rae navigates and defies the limitations of the everyday environment of the train station platform, portraying a situation that offers an alternative spatial and psychological interaction between the artist and the possibilities that are held in her surrounds. Rae’s engagement with photography and performance culminates in a video that tests the boundaries between all three mediums.

The Wait is part of Shop Front.
