A MONUMENTAL SCULPTURE AS AN EMBLEM The emblem that will shape the visual identity of this fourth edition was created by Norwegian artist Hanne Friis and will be exhibited at Révélations. Nuances in blue and black is created from recycled jeans sewn together and transformed into a monumental hanging sculpture.
