Alain Godon’s lit­tle world at the museum

The artist and sculp­tor Alain Godon, the resort’s “prodi­gal son” is exhibit­ing at the Museum of Le Tou­quet between 19 Feb­ru­ary and 18 March. “Extravanganza’s” inten­tion is to sur­prise, over­whelm, cap­ti­vate. Cel­e­brat­ing its cen­te­nary, the town is pay­ing homage to the artist’s com­plete free­dom; as an artist, he has suc­ceeded in infus­ing a new magic into Le Touquet’s archi­tec­ture. Alain Godon, artist and sculp­tor, who spends his time between Paris and Lon­don, has returned to Le Tou­quet smil­ing broadly. “Extrav­a­ganza” will be launched at 3pm on 19 Feb­ru­ary with an open­ing cer­e­mony and a sign­ing ses­sion of his book of the exhi­bi­tion together with its lim­ited edi­tion poster. This is a sim­ple and touch­ing oppor­tu­nity to meet his fans and for his work to be seen. In total, and in addi­tion to his “Bil­doRe­liefo” (dig­i­tal paint­ings re-​worked by the artist), over 100 works will be on dis­play. In the vein of the cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tions, the goal of the Museum of Le Tou­quet is to exhibit Alain Godon’s paint­ings at their very best, in a por­trayal that is an utterly unre­strained re-​interpretation of the resort’s architecture.
