François Quévillon is an artist based in Montreal (Quebec, Canada). His interdisciplinary practice explores phenomena of the world and perception by the implementation of processes that are sensitive to the fluctuations of environmental conditions and to human interference. His work addresses planetary changes as well as those affecting contemporary media, such as the relations between algorithms and images. He investigates how technology alters human cognition, culture, the environment, our relationships to space, to time and to one another.
Frequently developed during artist residencies, François Quévillon’s work has been presented at exhibitions and events dedicated to contemporary art, cinema and digital creation. Among them : Connecting the Dots (Mexico), Sundance’s New Frontier exhibition (Park City), Spaces Under Scrutiny at the Knockdown Center (New York), International Symposium on Electronic Art (Gwangju, Dubai and Albuquerque), Flora and İnsan Eli Değmiş at Kalyon Kültür (Istanbul), .dreams at the Theatre of Digital Art (Dubai), Open Media Art Festival – Digital Aura (Seoul), Intervals (Nizhny Novgorod), Festival Internacional de Linguagem Eletrônica (São Paulo), IndieBo (Bogotá), LOOP Barcelona, Contemporary Istanbul, Mirage Festival (Lyon), Show Off Paris, Festival de la Imagen (Manizales), Mois Multi (Québec), FIFA, Mutek, NeurIPS, RIDM, Elektra and International Digital Art Biennal (Montréal).
