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.
