The exhibition looks back at the insurmountable image maker’s work ranging from fashion to photography, advertising and the performing arts.

Precursor, image manipulator, in turn illustrator, art director, photographer and filmmaker, Jean-Paul Goude is above all a creator who invented a style, a universe. The exhibition presents, in a journey of intimate spaces and dramatic sequences: drawings, objects and images, spanning a career of over 40 years. The show is divided into six, with ‘themes’ including the Galeries Lafayette, Chanel and Grace Jones.

Grace Jones and Jean Paul Goude were and still are, often synonymous with each other. Jones being Goude’s muse whilst Goude being the man who shaped her image. Incessantly, he photographed, painted and twisted her and her images into arabesques in line with his fantasies of the female form.

At around the same time, he began to apply the principles of so called French Correction to photography. The French Correction or “short guide to highlight”, was his ironic approach to magnifying the body with all kinds of prostheses which redrew the body by lengthening legs and neck, spreading shoulders, breasts and reshaping buttocks. This transformed Goude into a surgeon artist of sorts.
