Philippe Perrin

France Born in: 1964
Translation in progress

Philippe Perrin is first and foremost the meticulous director of a realistic narrative challenging the audience with his obsession to portray the forces shaping the lives of men. Faith, violence, love, injustice and drugs. It is never a moral lesson or an example, but rather a representation of oneself in connection with these forces. 

His medium is reality as it presents itself now. To work with it, the artist uses the tools of documentary: drawings, diagrams, pictures, collections and reproductions of objects, communication, staged and sometimes spectacular theatrical productions, news items, intimate dramas and modern-day rituals. 

One reason why Philippe Perrin's work may stun the viewer and unsettle the enthusiast is that it is radical and exclusive in a vein that is not typically seen, and if violence is - wrongly - associated with chaos, it is because it remains largely unknown, almost a taboo, and as such is frightening.

« I love that my works give this impression of taking the viewer hostage. There is no room for indifference. The only way to get out of it unscathed is through reflection, regardless of one's culture. It is intelligence that can help us escape this evil state, along with physical and mental harmony with the said object. » Philippe Perrin
