Photographer artist, active member of the Platform place. Philippe Calandre initially chose the photographic medium for its expressive immediacy, its ease of use, when there was no other particular attraction between them. Using the camera as a reproductive tool that he has not stopped taking on the wrong foot, he mischievously replaces an anti thesis, pushing the experience of its use to the limits of definition. This will lead to the very erasure of the subject as a photogenic element.

Platform is an independent structure. A space for dissemination, creation and resource for contemporary art, it functions as a shared and unifying space in which artists come together in the will of a synergy of imaginative potentials.
Each month, Platform presents an exhibition of about three weeks followed by a more eventful programming (performances, screenings, etc.) focused mainly on experimentation and research. The selection is oriented towards demanding artistic practices. It proposes projects of confirmed national and international artists and also has the mission to actively show the young creation.
Platform is part of the city as a bridge that can bring together disciplines and forms to build, through encounters and discoveries, exchanges essential to an artistic and social experience intellectually and humanly stimulating.
This project of exchange place between artists, curators and public is carried by the company, Parisian structure which gathers about fifty international artists.
