Throughout this monographic itinerary, Jean-Paul Lespagnard invites the visitor to explore his creative process, together offbeat and committed.
Jean-Paul Lespagnard, a Belgian creator, laureate of the International Fashion and Photography Festival of Hyères in 2008 and who will take part in the European Capital of Culture of the city of Mons in 2015, imagined Till We Drop, and an exhibition that reflects his style: offbeat and committed.
Throughout this monographic itinerary, Jean-Paul Lespagnard invites the visitor to explore his creative process. Inspired by his eponymous collection of 2014, shown in Paris in September 2013, the project evokes the exuberant lifestyle of the prestigious hotels of the Riviera Maya in Mexico and acts as a reminder of a particular idea of artificial paradise. Euphoric worlds based on transgression and freedom.
Jean-Paul Lespagnard, disguised as a bee, leads us through a journey scattered with devices that portray the rituals, habits and customs of the impulsive tourist, freed from all material contingencies.
Jean-Paul Lespagnard charms by his derision, quite a breath of fresh air! As an autodidact, he stands out as a liberated creator, breaking away from the prevailing gloominess, and puts himself on stage in his own iconographic conceptions; whether he’s dressed up like a bee in Mexico or posing as William Tell with an orange on his head.
