Installation at the entrance of the Werkplaats Typografie. A personified siren plays a series of recorded sounds; a loud, disruptive, bold and seductive concierge. This work both refers to civil defense sirens and its analogy with the myth of mermaids (translated to “sirènes” in French) — dangerous figures enchanting navigators with their voices/chants. The Bell can now be appropriated by the current residents of Werkplaats Typografie.
