First monographic catalog of Evariste Richer, this book covers an eight years’ period of production (2000-2008) with about fifty artworks. Along with detailed notes the different works come one after another according to an order induced by the artist. Three authors have written texts giving a precise look on an artistic practice that endeavor to examine the different states of the matter, to generate perception’s troubles, to put the measures standards into perspective by introducing an uncertain side, or to introduce slight space and time’s distortions in the usual course of things.
