The International Centre for Art and Landscape is inviting Evariste Richer to show a group of new works. Specifically created for the building designed by Aldo Rossi and Xavier Fabre, they relate to the geography, geology and climate of the Millevaches Plateau.

For this exhbition on Vassivière Island, the artist will elaborate on his earlier investigations into the capturing of landscape and space by using old photography and measurement techniques in new ways. Triangulation, inspired by Delambre and Méchain’s use of the Paris meridian to define the standard metre in the late 18th century, provides the unit of measurement for part of the exhibition. Other works illustrate the gap between microcosm and macrocosm, ranging from the internal structure of a scale of mica to a pixellated avalanche made up of thousands of dice. Like the depth-probe pointing skywards, many of these works stand the world on its head.

Born in Montpellier in 1969, Evariste Richer lives and works in Paris.
