From April 10, the Frac Centre will host "Relief(s)— Designing the Horizon", a series of exhibitions, workshops, and meetings exploring the place of the relief in the timeline of modern art. Over five months the work of Yasuaki Onishi, Gérard Singer, and Aurélie Pétrel will be on display alongside a host of  supplementary cultural and educational programs. Hoping to "[shed] new light on the way in which contemporary art can renew our reading of the landscape and, more broadly the environment", the exhibition will run until September 19. Learn more about the artists involved and view selected works after the break.

Dividing her time between Paris and Geneva, Aurélie Petrel works across dimensions and media to create a rich and diverse body of work. Photographing both the everyday and the extraordinary, Petrel toys with scale and topography, generating intriguing images that abound with tension.

"Relief(s)— Designing the Horizon" marks the first French exhibition of Japanese artist Yasuaki Onishi, following a production residency at Les Turbulences. Ethereal and buoyant, Onishi's string installations transform the exhibition space into one of mystery and depth.

Of the three bodies of work, Gerard Singer's is perhaps the closest to the conventional definition of the "relief", straddling the boundary between art and architecture. From his interest and experience in mountaineering, Singer uses both analogue and digital means to produce what the exhibition curators describe as "a total art, for everyone".

The group exhibition will conclude with a week of in-house events and workshops at the beginning of September, featuring talks from Peaks (Charles Aubertin, Camille Dupont, Samuel Jaubert de Beaujeu & Eva Maloisel). More information can be found on the Frac Centre's site
