by Sylvie Fleury



A ‘punk feminist in disguise’, as she calls herself, since the late 1980s Sylvie Fleury has been confronting the mechanisms of the production of desire and construction of value, and how they interact with gender politics. Objects, symbols and imageries from diverse fields – fashion, cinema, pop subcultures, science fiction – are absorbed into Fleury’s visual vocabulary and employed to construct unexpected narratives, that question the paradigms of Western art history.

This publication accompanies the exhibition of the same name at the Pinacoteca Agnelli in Turin, the most complete so far dedicated to the artist in Italy: it is not a traditional catalogue but a magazine, a favourite object of Fleury, both as a cultural fetish capable of providing a snapshot of its time, and as a tool of self-definition. Art theories and practices are channeled into a fashion magazine, in columns, short essays, fashion spreads, glossaries, interviews, advertising, and, obviously, a horoscope; beside the texts, the publication features spreads, including exclusive behind-the-scenes images of Fleury’s videos and installations, some never-before-seen photos unearthed from her archives, and a shoot of artist in the Lingotto.

Shipping, customs duties and taxes are at the buyer's expense.

Sylvie Fleury

Born in 1961 in Geneva, where she continues to live and work, Sylvie Fleury emerged in the early 90’s as a significant figure on the international art stage. Fleury’s ’shopping bag’ installations, which she included in some of her earliest exhibitions, laid the foundations for a body of work that would draw on elements from both twentieth-century art and consumer society.
