Éloge de la transgression

Philippe Ramette

Philippe Ramette’s work offers off-kilter and quirky perspectives on the world. Returning to the codes of classical sculpture, he has created a set of two Éloges (“Odes”) that can be found throughout Nantes. This series does not pay tribute to the glory of a man, but to that of an attitude.

In Cours Cambronne, Éloge de la transgression depicts a schoolgirl climbing onto an empty pedestal. That is, unless she’s climbing off...? As always with Philippe Ramette, it’s all a question of perspective.
