François Quévillon

Manœuvrer l’incontrôlable

February 9 to April 21, 2019

Curator _ Eric Mattson

Artist François Quévillon brings to EXPRESSION devices that apply various algorithmic procedures to scenes recorded using stationary, airborne and motorized cameras. Juxtaposing artificial intelligence techniques against the unpredictable nature of the world, and analyzing their data from this same perspective, the artist explores the ways in which such systems react when interpreting unexpected situations and phenomena. The works in the show, which mimic self-driving vehicles, drones, connected objects and the monitoring of potentially catastrophic events, are the products of in-depth research. They give us a clear yet serene and amused vision of the technological developments that mark the period in which we live.

Quévillon’s devices invite us to contemplate, or experience directly, a tangible chaos in ambiguous situations in which the unfathomable appears. The artist explores the ways in which technology affects or redefines our cognitive processes, our environment and our relationships to space, time and other people. Ultimately, it is up to us to do the work of reflection that his work encourages us to do.


Opening and guided tour on Saturday, February 9, at 2 p.m.
