Philippe Ramette is a French artist. He lives and works in Paris.
He is a sculptor above all and creates objects which purpose lies not in their daily use but in the thought-provoking processes that they incur. He produced works such as 'Point de vue' (Installation, 1989) which is about "imagining what we could see." He creates improbable objects or situations, yet it is not to illustrate the absurd, but rather to build rationally an irrational image. Ramette himself takes part in his photos wearing a black suit, he makes an image where he will be an extravagant part of it and which will visually be just stunning. His photos don’t undergo any editing or any montage, as the artist seeks above all to keep in touch with his work as a sculptor.
