To that you must add the word “fictitious” — Gigi Gaston is wholly and entirely a creation of Gosfield, an artist and designer whose exhibition at the Steven Kasher Gallery in Manhattan closes on Wednesday, November 25th after a monthlong run. Not only did he cast Gigi, shoot the period-perfect photos and created the meticulously rendered versions of the covers of actual magazine of the era along with a staggering variety of her record sleeves, he’s also responsible for the putative Jean-Luc Godard film short for Gigi’s haunting song “Je Suis Perdue,” which is presented here for your viewing pleasure.
