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.
