DESCRIPTION

From 29 October 2008 to 25 January 2009, Mamco is holding a major Anthology show of the work of Sylvie
Fleury, reflecting the many different sculptural and visual aspects of her art. Paillettes et Dépendances ou la
fascination du néant (Sequins and Dependencies or the Fascination of Oblivion) is the title she has given to
this exhibition in Geneva, the biggest of her career so far.
On the four floors of the museum, Fleury has chosen to bring together over 200 pieces, including a
sizeable corpus of new productions. These range from paintings and sculpture to videos, photographs, sound
pieces and environments created on-site. The works are organized in relation to the main themes running
through her art, such as fashion and its multiple accessories, the world of automobiles and the conquest of
space (with rockets and flying saucers distributed around the museum space). It should be a very intense
show!
