AwardsThe Geneva Société des Arts Prize

Sylvie Fleury (born 1961 in Geneva, Switzerland) is a contemporary Swiss pop artist known for her installations, sculpture, and mixed media. Her work generally depicts objects with sentimental and aesthetic attachments in consumer culture, as well as the paradigm of the new age.[1] Specifically, much of her work addresses issues of gendered consumption and the fetishistic relationships to consumer objects. Critics have labeled her work "post-appropriationist," and her books The art of survival, First Spaceship on Venus and Other Vehicles, and Parkett #58 (with Jason Rhoades and James Rosenquist), have been featured internationally. In 2015, she won the Prix de la Société des arts de Genève.[2]


"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 ready-mades 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."[3]

"For many years Sylvie Fleury, who in 1993 already exhibited at the 45th Biennale di Venezia, has regularly been represented at international galleries and exhibition houses. Her installations pose questions about the cultural self-understanding of Western society: Like how our consumption influences our identity, how does the world of products awaken our desire und how it controls our imagination of beauty and attractiveness.”[4]
