François Quévillon is the creative force behind a new art installation in Quebec, Canada, inspired by the imminent eruption of Iceland’s Bárðarbunga volcano entitled Waiting for Bárðarbunga.

“This project started during a residency in Iceland in August 2014,” explains Quévillon. “I was south of the Vatnajökull glacier and heading north-east when warnings of the possible eruption of the Bárðarbunga subglacial stratovolcano begun.”

This was the artist’s cue to begin making the audio-visual recordings and hundreds of video sequences that make up this eerily compelling depiction of a pre-eruption Icelandic landscape.

Waiting for Bárðarbunga [is] a non-linear audiovisual piece that deals with the monitoring and transformation of volcanic areas in Iceland,” reads the project webpage. You can read a full description of Quévillon’s inspiration, methods and artistic focus here.

The piece will be exhibited until 20 September at espace f in Matane (Québec), Canada.
