Fwd: Preview| The World Upside Down |Philippe Ramette | 8th December, 2012 7 pm


Philippe Ramette is a French Sculptor and photographer born in 1961. He likes to defy the laws of gravity, as well as those of logic. Although he defines himself primarily as a sculptor, he started to use photography early on as a means of including himself within his own works. This became a pretext to all sorts of experimenting. Between 2003 and 2006, French conceptual artist Philippe Ramette created a series of gravity-defying photographs that show him in seemingly impossible poses. Ramette stages himself in his black suit: he creates stunning images of landscapes which he himself integrates in the most astonishing way. He then produces shots in cooperation with photographer Marc Domage. These photos are never retouched because, above all, Philippe Ramette aims at remaining in touch with the sculptural aspect of his work.
