    About The Work

    Visionaire releases its 66th issue with a set of sculptures. Ritual comes in the form of sculptural scented candles created by three world-renowned artists and produced by International Flavors & Fragrances and is published in an edition of 200 copies.

    Maurizio Cattelan gave Visionaire a particular Italian plunger that was reproduced at full scale. The black wax captures the subtle wooden texture of the handle and the smooth rubber of the base. It smells of fresh roses created by Bruno Jovanovic of IFF.  

    Barbara Kruger transformed one of her iconic two-dimensional works into a sculpture that smells like marijuana, a scent developed by Laurent Le Guernec of IFF. The words “Buy Me I'll Change your Life” dramatically jut out of the facade.

    Bruce Weber embraced the latest in technology as he 3D-captured his current favorite male model Trevor Signorino. The 3D file was then transformed into an all-white sculptural portrait replete with facial features and muscle tone. Carlos Benaim of IFF created the scent of the beach on a hot summer day on the Jersey Shore where Signorino works selling ice cream.
