A wide overview of the art research and creation of the French Canadian Philippe Boissonnet. Art holography, digital photography, interactive installation, photo-performance, drawings, and more

Photo - Installation

“Philippe Boissonnet proposed to change our perception of the Earth, from Mother Earth to Child Earth, as if it were a being we carry inside us and must look after. We are aware of our impact upon the world, but what Boissonnet awesomely expresses […] is the world’s impact upon us”.

(Annick Bureaud, L’extrémité au cœur: (se) connecter (avec) les Pôles, dans le catalogue : “Sur Polar : Arte en Antartida”, Buenos Aires : ed. UNTREF, 2008. Translated by Estudio Lucille Barnes )
