Utter tells a story about the complexities of the mother/child relationship from the perspective of language acquisition in a performance with sound and images. The piece is based on a text and composition by Anne La Berge. She invited me to develop the visual part of the piece, and we involved Marcel Wierckx who in turn helped with the interactive set up that we had envisioned for the piece. The three of us worked artistically on developing Utter, aiming at a format that could be performed live by Anne as well as being an interactive installation. The set includes 6 iPads that run a newly developed app that interacts with a laptop that steers both audio and visual material. Unsounds has published Utter within a collection of digital stories. Utter has been performed in the US, Mexico, New Zealand, and Europe, and will continue to be performed live in the future.
The making of Utter and performance tours can be seen on Anne’s website: here.

If that diamond ring turns brass

September 9th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

“Many lullabies, sweet as they commonly seem, often reflect dark and sinister meaning. Vigier’s selection from various traditional poems develops throughout the work alongside increasingly more obscure imagery. She delves into the darkness of the night, paying homage to the legends, terrors and the eventual peace that often settles across the night’s span. These images are accompanied by haunting subtleties in the soundtrack, such as the glass bead mobile shimmering beneath the unrelenting violin arpeggios in Kate Moore’s Broken Rosary.”  – Music Trust Australia, review by Tamara Kholer 02-2020

 A work based on the deconstruction of the lyrics in lullabies of various heritages. Re-contextualizing words and images, I composed an abstract berceuse, around the mysteries, the fears and the peace that come with the act of falling asleep. This project is companion to the program called ‘Close your eyes and I’ll close mine’ that toured around Australia in 2012, with Anna McMichael, violin, Tamara-Anna Cislowska, piano, Isabelle Vigier, video. It is published on Unsounds, 2014.

 

 

The Other Wind-Cape

October 13th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Wear-on installation playing with movement (motion and wind) and impact on the street image. The Other Wind Cape is a garment that features a 3 dimensional body shape on its back, that inflates, moves and dances in the wind. The silhouette becomes a double body, two bodies back to back, as imaginary companions, or shadows maybe. Light weight waterproof nylon, limited edition.

The Other Wind Cape has integrated the Deste Fashion Collection in 2012, as part of a selection of 7 art and fashion projects made in 2011. The capsule 2012 was curated by Athina Rachel Tsangari for the Deste foundation.
