Jacques Mouclier: “What is for you the meaning of an icon?” An icon is someone culturally regarded as a symbol. Incredibly special in whatever way (beauty or talent for example). It’s not a word to be taken lightly. Franck Sorbier is an icon to me. Fashion icons include Karl, Gautier, Simmoens… People that were just unstoppable.

Does the work of art owe its existence to its iconic status? In an in-depth reflection based on studies of the life and works of various artists –from Georgia O’Keeffe to Andy Warhol– we reach the essence of what makes their work iconic.
