Sylvie Fleury

Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury was born in 1961 in Geneva where she still lives and works. Her sculpture and other works address subjects such as shopping, cars, extra-terrestrials, and New Age thinking. She says that 're-contextualizing something that's very superficial will give it a new depth', and often uses methods of presentation taken from the fashion world. This golden Ray-gun encapsulates her method of 'transforming the macho into femme fatale', and was included in the England & Co exhibition Is there anybody out there?
