History’s Garden (2006) is the first in a quartet of micro-projection videos by LigoranoReese that incorporate life-size metronomes. Faces of Central European and Middle Eastern refugees from the 1930’s to the present peer out as the pendulum swings back and forth. The figures move through the counterweight’s frame measuring the march of a despairing history. The counterweight is a small prism that functions as a video screen that measures 1/2 inch square. The lens and video projection system are mounted underneath the metronome on a motorized arm that swings from side to side.

The billowing colored smoke against the sky in Kevin Cooley's three-channel video These Colors (2018) presents many possible metaphors. By using the colors of the American Flag, the three-channel piece symbolizes political smokescreens fueled by fear and shrouding truth, or blind patriotism, or the potentiality for explosive fits for social unrest. The clouds also obscure the air we breathe, now under renewed threat in the wake of weakened environmental regulations.

Catharine Clark Gallery is proud to present Whitney Lynn's video work The Siren (2019) in its entirety via IGTV and Remote Access through September 5, 2020. In The Siren, a mermaid-costumed protagonist anxiously scales the crumbling remains of a graffiti-covered bunker, perched precariously on a coastal cliff known as Devil's Slide. As a low frequency audio score rumbles, the "siren" struggles to gain footing, bound by a garment that combines an image of kitsch seduction with an unsettling vulnerability. Lynn's video is presented in concert with Hotheads, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by acclaimed artist Julie Heffernan.
