Ramette, Philippe (1961)

After studying painting in the late 1980s, Philippe Ramette decides to create hybrid theatrical, playful and absurd sculptures that he soon stages in photographs. Combining burlesque and tragedy, his images represent the artist, always clad in a dark suit, performing acrobatic sceneries without the help of any tricks nor editing but, always accompanied by his prothesis-like sculptures that enable him to float in the airs, live upside-down or under water. By revealing the incongruity of life, the French photographer proposes a new take on the traditional contemplative figure of art: a new meditative state and an innovative way of observing reality without denying it: ‘the intention is to always represent a character off-beat from the world.’
