Charles Quevillon – Le Refuge des Cordes

Le Refuge des Cordes is a room-sized interactive sonic sculpture.

The aim of the work is to metamorphose the electric guitar into a sacred space. It is a meditation on the sanctity of technology.

The work is part of “The Immortal’s birthday”, an exhibition by visual artist Maija Tammi and composer/performer Charles Quevillon that combines Greek myths, spirituality, technology, scientific research, and the Hydra.
