Biography

Translation in progress

Philippe Ramette was born in 1961. He lives and works in Paris.

Since the early 1990s, Philippe Ramette has been developing a work evolving around the conception and the realisation of objects in their relation to the body or, more precisely, objects expressing the reflexive dimension of the body: "Object to manipulate the void","Portable individual point of view", "Isolating Box", "Lightning bolt sofa". These pieces are often instruments or "dispositifs" designed to experience physically what should only be a mental process.

If Philippe Ramette has defined himself first of all as sculptor, his photographic work, which at the beginning was of a relatively small scale, is now a medium of choice for all kinds of experience and experimentation.
Through the invention of these objects and photographies featuring improbable situations, Philippe Ramette traces a portrait of the artist as an actor of himself, an anti-narcissistic portrait where the object of the performer and the object central to the performance are distanced. It is an Œuvre whose final goal is not to overcome deficiencies or handicaps, but to offer the body the possibility of various extensions, and to challenge the world as well as himself.
