Jacques Carelman was born a week after the great Wall Street crash. He came to Paris in 1956 to devote himself to painting and sculpture, to stage and costume design for the theater, and to book illustrations. He is above all known for his Catalogue d'objets introuvables (1969), objects he has subsequently made and exhibited world-wide. Founder-member of the Oupeinpo, he is Regent of the College of 'Pataphysics, where he holds the chair in Helicology.
