Philippe Gobert (de) |1946 , Born in Brussels, Belgium

Philippe de Gobert, originally a painter, turned to photography having seen the dadaist work of Kurt Schwitters, which prompted him to abandon painting and begin assembling different materials and objects. His way of working is meticulous and exact : following a detailed observation of the places surrounding him, the artist then constructs a model, which is always sterile and devoid of humanity, so that the structure itself will be the sole subject of his photographs.

Philippe de Gobert, who lives and works in Brussels, regularly exhibits in Paris and in the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.
