About Sylvie Fleury

Sylvie Fleury creates seductive objects and multimedia installations that, although they might be mistaken as endorsement, present a subtle commentary on the superficiality of consumer society and its values. Referencing Marcel Duchamp’s readymades and Andy Warhol’s obsession with shopping, Fleury draws on elements from luxury clothing, Formula1 racing, contemporary art, magazine covers, and designer objects. The phrase “Yes to All” is a recurring theme in much of Fleury's objects (including gold plated waste baskets and Swarovski crystal embellished signs), borrowed the profane computer command critiquing the increasingly uncontrollable consumer desire before the 2007 global economic collapse.

Swiss, b. 1961, Geneva, Switzerland, based in Geneva, Switzerland
