Vanessa Disler
Songbird Supreme
2021


In Vanessa Disler's installation, the body radiates through its invisibility, its presence only evoked by traces. Between BDSM cage, for prisoners or birds, the iron structure has been thought of as an exo-skeleton, where body and architecture, musical, prison and decorative motifs merge to awaken ghostly presences. The cage in question opens moreover as a curtain would rise on a stage and resounds an ambient musical piece superimposing the male vocal registers (bass, baritone, tenor and castrato). Its title: "Songbird Supreme", a term used to describe the high voice of Mariah Carey, close to that of the barrows.
