Philippe Ramette at Le Voyage à Nantes
Éloge du déplacement
Philippe Ramette is returning to Nantes with a new work Éloge du déplacement to offer a direct response to his sculpture Éloge du pas de côté (“Ode to Sidestepping”) installed on Place du Bouffay since 2018.
For this edition of “Le Voyage à Nantes”, the artist has created an identical replica of the base and statue right down to the slightest detail, including the tip of the shoe that has been made shiny by the countless hands that have touched it. Philippe Ramette injects the uncanny into the city, creating a work that will be exhibited in various spots throughout Nantes all summer long.
