Sylvie Fleury Biography

Sylvie Fleury is a contemporary pop artist that employs sculpture and mixed media to address issues such as shopping and the paradigm of the new age. Born in 1961 in Geneva, Switzerland, where she still lives and works, the artist emerged as a key figure in the art scene from the early nineties with her “shopping bag” installations, which lay the foundations for a body of work that would draw on elements from twentieth-century art and consumer society.

Since 1991, Fleury has had numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States. Most recently, her solo shows include Sylvie Fleury et Charlotte Posenenske at 8 rue Saint-Bon, Paris, It Might As Well Rain Until September at Salon 94, New York, and Do not Think of the Color Blue for Thirty Seconds, at Galerie Mehdi, Berlin. Fleury’s works are held in multiple public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, United States, the Centre for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany, the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art in Zurich, Switzerland, and the Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Arts in Vienna, Switzerland.
