“The Upside Down World of Philippe Ramette”
From 16 February 2012 – April 29 2012 the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre features French contemporary sculptor and photographer Philippe Ramette. The Upside Down World is a collection of beautifully absurd photographs. The pictures show Ramette himself in his black suit among stunning landscapes, his figure posed in gravity defying and logic defying ways, all without retouching.
Philippe Ramette is a French sculptor and photographer born in 1961. He likes to defy the laws of gravity, as well as those of logic. Although he defines himself primarily as a sculptor, he started to use photography early on as a means of including himself within his own works. This became a pretext to all sorts of experimenting. Ramette stages himself in his black suit: he creates stunning images of landscapes, which he himself integrates in the most astonishing way. He then produces shots in cooperation with photographer Marc Domage. These photos are never retouched because, above all, Philippe Ramette aims at remaining to remain in touch with the sculptural aspect of his work.
