Performance by Kathrine Trimble (cello), 7pm

Chicago artist Selina Trepp presents a new site-specific work at Comfort Station entitled Waiting for the Train. Responding directly to the history of the Comfort Station as a turn of the century building designed specifically as a comfortable place for Logan Square residents to wait for trolley cars, Trepp creates a multimedia installation that returns the space to this initial state of waiting. A video projection leaves a series of subtle animations throughout the space that represent the traces of past visitors who have passed through the Comfort Station: a name scratched into a bench, a tag here or there, an occasional drawing, or a forgotten book of matches… When the waiting room is active, it is a suspended space; it contains people who are still, yet in transition. The waiting room is Limbo. A single object, tucked away in the back room of the Comfort Station, acts, perhaps as a stand-in for these waiting, transitory figures.

Waiting for the Train will be viewable every Friday in September from 6-10pm, as well as before, during, or after select Comfort Station events, and by appointment.
