The Siren

2019, single-channel video, TRT: 14:36 min. (03:08 min. excerpt)

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.
