Maija Tammi & Charles Quevillon
IMMORTAL’S BIRTHDAY

Finnish visual artist Maija Tammi and Canadian composer and performer Charles Quevillon have created an exhibition that combines Greek myths, spirituality, technology, scientific research, and the Hydra.

Hydra is a genus of small fresh-water polyps that do not age – at all.

Tammi’s photographs and video pursue the human place in the continuum of existence and aging, and Quevillon’s interactive sound sculpture Le Refuge des Cordes is a meditation on the sanctity of technology.

An integral part of the exhibition is also Tammi’s and visual storyteller Ville Tietäväinen’s book Immortal published by Aalto ARTS Books.
