Philippe Ramette

Date of birth : 1961

Country : France

French sculptor and photographer born in 1961.

Contemplation irrationnelle, originally from a series achieved in 2003, is inspired by the swinging device experimented in the “Balcons” series. Using the inversion process of the image and of his own body as tools for his expression, the artist defies the laws of gravity.

To make this photo, the artist conceived an invisible prostheses, concealed under his clothes, his usual “suit and tie”. This allows him to experiment “irrational positions” during the short time required to take the picture.
