Sylvie Fleury . 49000

Description: “Fashion girl” Sylvie Fleury’s work looks like a confirmation of the values of a consumer society, but it is much more of a bang for your buck than that. Subtly commenting on appearance for appearance’s sake, she appropriates logos from fashion houses, perfume stores, and glossy magazines and uses them to identify the human passions and desires connected to them. 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 has recently turned to magic light phenomena, colorful rooms, flossy surfaces, magic auras, pendulums, and crystals. 49000, with a layout by the Swiss artist herself, presents work from the last two years along with classics from the 90s.

Text: Mecher Ralph, Adriani Götz et al. cm 19×28; pp. 160; hardcover with dust jacket. Publisher: Hatje Cantz Verlag, Ostfildern, 2001.
