Among the highlights of this edition, Place Vendôme will be occupied by the duo Elmgreen & Dragset. Each year, FIAC Hors les Murs gives carte blanche to an artist to install a major artwork or to imagine a specific project for the Place Vendôme, which provides both powerful inspiration and an exceptional framework for contemporary creation.  In collaboration with Perrotin, this prestigious Parisian square will be metamorphosized by artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset with the work “To Whom It May Concern”, 2018, an installation made up of 100 red starfish scattered around the square. In contrast to traditional monumental public sculptures, the work adopts the horizontality of minimal land art and subtly takes over the plaza like a swarm of friendly intruders.
