  • About the artwork

    The edition of this photograph includes 5 copies and 3 artist proofs.
    It also exists in the format 100 x 80 cm (image) / 103 x 83 x 4 cm (framed).

    At the beginning of the 2000’s, Philippe Ramette created an ensemble of prostheses-sculptures designed for a series of photographs, which were inspired by the swinging device used in the "Balconies Series". Turning the image or his own body upside down, the artist is challenging the world and defying the laws of gravity.

    The protheses, hidden under a traditional suit and tie and not visible on the pictures, allow the artist to experience what he himself calls "irrational postures" during the brief moment of the shooting.

Philippe Ramette

Born in: 1961


Famous artist

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

Sculpture was the starting point of his career and lead him to a reflection that allowed him to project himself beyond reality as we conceive it. His sculptures also play an essential role in the conception of his photographs. Without any editing and retouching, only with the help of sculptural props, he puts himself in improbable and absurd situations. In these images, he defies gravity and even reason in order to correct human inadequacies and limitations.

Philippe Ramette challenges our imagination and invites us to envision new possibilities through his works that are both dreamlike and funny. He explores the memory of a past familiar to us, a common memory, in a sweet melancholic state.

His works are held in major public collections: the collection of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Marseille, several FRACs and the MAC/VAL in Vitry-sur-Seine (close to Paris).
