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 rarely mentioned that Fleury’s paper bag installations contain original shoppings of Sylvie Fleury. 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.

Apparently the list of exhibition venues in the biography was added to this publication after it was printed in 1991, since it states shows done in 1992. Or the publisher anticipated on the scheduled solo exhibition at Galerie van Gelder in Amsterdam and a group exhibition at Galerie Gilbert Brownestone in Paris.
