Contemporary was a monthly art magazine based in London, founded and edited by Keith Spencer as a quarterly publication. It re-emerged twice, the first time as Contemporary Art in 1993 and the second time again as Contemporary in 2002, but this time not limited anymore to visual arts. Once subscribed to the magazine each issue came with a print, with ink stamped signature and sometimes hand signed on sticker or just authorised with a text of origin.

This is the first catalogue of works by Sylvie Fleury. Shopping bag installation “It’s Clinique Bonus Time’ (1991) has been installed by her for a second time at Galerie van Gelder in Amsterdam in 1992. She added some bags to it, including the shoppings from where she got the paper bags from in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, USA.

For some reason it is never mentioned that the paper bag installations contain the original shoppings Sylvie Fleury did. At least here in this case. At the time she installed the piece she doubted to take her shoppings with her back home, since all these cloths were personal belongings that fitted her.

Below a list of the shoppings done in LA.

More detailed information:
For her solo exhibition in Galerie van Gelder Sylvie Fleury made a drawing ad hoc in which is shown how she wanted to have the VOGUE edition spread out all over the gallery walls. The small squares in the drawing refer to the artist’s idea.

During the Hugo Boss launch in 1999 of Sylvie Fleury’s Formula One Dress dress fashion models walked around who drank wine, champagne and the like. Quite a few dresses came out of this with stains. More than two decades later to find a dress in this never-used and pristine condition is a rarity.
