Sylvie Fleury, born in 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]
