Exhibition Catalogue Matisse-Godon, New-York, Tahiti. Architecture of dream, presented at the musée Matisse, Cateau-Cambrésis (14 october 2017 - 4 march 2018).

This re-appropriation of Matisse’s journey, his discovery of New York, its architecture and then Polynesia, is paralleled by a questioning of the notion of the term “journey” itself and its different meanings.

With paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs and installations made especially for the exhibition, Alain Godon offers us works which, although they can be immediately understood, are in fact far more complex, unveiling a unique universe that for those who take the time to look deeper is home to tales of everyday life. Using the same singular imagination he shares with Matisse, Godon reveals his desire to bring joy and happiness into his work.
