The Benaki Museum hosts his model creation at the Case 2 in the Gallery 5 on the 3rd floor of the Main Building, next to the costumes that inspired him.
Jean Paul Gaultier mentioned “Greece has always been an inspiration for me: the light, the sky, the islands, the sea, the people… I have a profound respect for your culture and the contribution you have made to humanity. Melina Merkouri, Irene Papas, Nana Mouskouri have with their talent, beauty and innate style left an indelible mark on film, theater, music and fashion. The Benaki Museum is one of the most beautiful in the world and I am proud to be part of this exhibition”.
J.P. Gaultier’s model «Paris-Athens» will be exhibited at the Benaki Museum until November 18th, 2017 in the framework of the group exhibition Under the spell of Greek costume: Contemporary creations animate the Benaki Museum collections, which takes part at Costa Navarino and International Athens Airport.
J.P. Gaultier’s participation in the project was made possible thanks to his close associate, Konstantinos Katalakinos
