Sylvie Fleury
Geneva, Switzerland
Artist

Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury emerged in the underground art scene in Geneva in the late 80s, 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.

I am film programmer at a venue called WORM in Rotterdam, and for BUT Film Festival in Breda. Our annual film festival focuses on Underground cinema and B-movies. For over 20 years I have been travelling to other festivals and collecting anything about weird and off-the-grid-cinema.
