Sylvie Fleury is a contemporary artist hailing from Switzerland. Through her use of mixed Media and sculpture, Fleury creates Art that at first can be taken as praise to consumer driven culture and the obsession with the material that grips society. However, far from being made in tribute, Sylvie Fleury's pieces are a critique of these values and a condemnation of them. Using the computer command "Yes To All" as a motif, Fleury's artwork presents the audience with a denunciation of gendered consumption and superficial obsession with luxury goods. Drawing obvious inspiration from appropriationist artists Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol, Fleury's use of the very pieces she condemns, from high heels to gold trash cans, is subversive, in the same vein as the pieces produced by her two predecessors. Finding examples of this Geneva resident takes minimal effort for she has pieces in New York’s Museum of Modern Art, as well as the Centre for Art and Media in Karlsruhe and the famousMuseum der Moderne. At 55,art lovers can be assured of a great deal more from this celebrated commentator on modern culture. After all, consumerism does not seem to be disappearing anytime soon, which means neither will Sylvie Fleury. Less
