Sylvie Fleury

Edited by Samuel Gross. Text by Alex Gartenfeld, Samuel Gross, Simon Lamunière.

"Dyptique" (2008) is reproduced from <I>Sylvie Fleury</I>.Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury (born 1961) is known for her 90s mises-en-scènes of glamour, fashion and luxury products. An affirmation of the consumer society and its values at first glance, the work simultaneously offers a different reading: by blurring codes and organizing the contamination of one sphere by another, her pieces are provocative and political, reflecting and anticipating her epoch just as they participate in it. In her attempt to come to terms with the fetishistic attachment to material goods that is the defining feature of the world of fashion, Fleury--after years exploring car culture, and creating bronze renderings of luxury clothing and cosmetics--turned to magic light phenomena: colorful rooms, glossy surfaces, auras, pendulums and crystals. These works from the 2000s are presented together for the first time with her classic pieces from the 1990s in this reference monograph.

Sylvie Fleury: Santa Baby

Sylvie Fleury: Santa Baby

In JRP|Ringier's new monograph on Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury, editor Samuel Gross playfully suggests to the artist, "Art shouldn't concern itself with gravitas or morality." Fleury responds, "This brings to mind a Zen-inspired slogan used by Calvin Klein for an underwear campaign in the 1990s: 'Be Good Be Bad Just Be.' When consistency became a real concern for me and I started to ask myself questions about what was truly at the heart of my work, I began to distance myself from the art world. Today I feel the urge to conduct new experiments in spaces that I have yet to explore." Featured image is "Santa Baby" (2010). continue to blog
