Gigi Gaston, The Black Flower

Ran across this on The Daily Beast –

The Steven Kasher Gallery just closed an exhibition by Josh Gosfield: Gigi Gaston, The Black Flower.

The elusive 60’s French pop star is commemorated with magazine covers, album art, photographs, and even a music “video”. What a treasury of vintage type!

You might wonder, like I did, why I hadn’t heard of a world-famous singer who had a music video directed by Jean Luc Godard, and who disappeared after being acquitted of murdering her husband in a jealous rage. I won’t spoil the story for you…you’ll have to check it out for yourself.
