Philippe Ramette’s chair levitation questions the laws of gravity, thus fitting in line with his latest photographic works. This painted bronze sculpture simulates the true textures of wood and rope, creating the illusion of a levitation, in a poetical way. The artist himself calls this work a “photographical sculpture”. It depicts the all-at-onceness of a movement: the moment when the chair takes off and escapes from the rope that retains it.
