Philippe Perrin, (La Tronche, 10 August 1964) is a French artist and contemporary photographer who lives and works in Paris.

Biography[edit]

Philippe Perrin was born in 1964 in La Tronche. Graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Grenoble,[1] his work has been the subject of many gallery and museum shows, including his retrospective at the Maison Européene de la Photographie,[2] at the Fondation Maeght,[3] as well being sold in public auction, including the work 'Couteau' sold by Sotheby's Paris in the sale 'The Secret Garden of Marianne and Pierre Nahon' in 2004.[2][4]

Work[edit]

Since the 1980s, Philippe Perrin has been an unconventional figure on the international art scene, known for his short temper and bad-boy image, exploring the inter merging of reality and fiction, evoking in his work symbols of violence taken from a variety of genres, such as crime fiction, cinema, or popular culture,[5] notably he pays with the question of scale of the object, such as the revolver or a razor blade.[6][7]

His fascination with fictional characters or symbols of the underworld : the gram of coke becomes a kilogram, or a razor blade, a revolver and other symbols of violence are presented on a large scale.[8] For the French art critic Nicolas Bourriaud, "Perrin is a manipulator of signs, interpreting the relationship between reality and fiction through a question of scale, treating in the same manner the relation between a true biography and that of the figure of a celebrity."[9]

A work representative of Perrin's language of allegory-visual suggestion his "Skyline": seven ball cartridges of variable sizes respect the measures of the space where they are inserted, forming a front: first line of a fighting army or a skyscrapers seafront. [10]
