François Quévillon (Montréal, Québec, Canada)



Defrost is a video installation that explores the different states of matter by orchestrating its transformation. At the center of three screens is a slowly growing mass of ice around which several phenomena caused by thermal contrasts evolve in crescendo. Building momentum through environmental turbulence and reaching a point when the block of ice melts rapidly, the work evokes nature’s cycles as well as the disturbances associated with climate change.



François Quévillon is an artist from Montréal (Québec, Canada). He has an interdisciplinary practice that combines installation, video, photography, sound and digital technologies. His work explores phenomena of the world and perception by the implementation of processes sensitive to their fluctuations and to the interference of contextual elements. He investigates how technology affects or redefines human cognition, culture and the environment, as well as our relationships to space, time, and one another.

He holds a Master’s Degree in Visual and Media Arts from UQAM and has been involved with several artist-run centres and research groups. His work, which is frequently developed during artist residencies, has been presented in exhibitions and at events dedicated to contemporary art, cinema, and digital creation. Among them: Sundance’s New Frontier exhibition (Park City), Spaces Under Scrutiny (New York), International Symposium on Electronic Art (Dubaï and Albuquerque), Festival Internacional de Linguagem

Eletrônica (São Paulo), IndieBo (Bogotá), LOOP Barcelona, Plug-In at Contemporary Istanbul, Show Off Paris, Festival de la Imagen (Manizales), Mois Multi (Québec), Espace [IM] Média (Sherbrooke), RIDM, Elektra, and International Digital Art Biennal (Montréal).
