Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury (b. 1961) emerged in the underground art scene in Geneva in the late eighties, introducing a politically-charged dialogue in the realm of post-conceptual thought. Fleury’s artistic explorations of twentieth-century paradoxes, including luxury consumerism versus popular media and culture, masculinity and femininity, and so on, make statements that are winsome, seductive and confrontational. Recent solo exhibitions of her work have taken place at CAC Malaga, Spain (2011); Galerie Almine Rech, Bruxelles, Belgium (2010); and Thaddaeus Ropac Salzburg, Austria (2010). The currently artist lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland.
