Sylvie Fleury Between My Legs, 1998
12 May – 20 June 2020
To accompany the reopening of Sylvie Fleury's exhibition She-Devils on Wheels at our Paris Marais gallery, we shared the video of her 1998 performance Between My Legs, in which she drives the iconic car while engaged in suggestive activities. Often posited as the ultimate signifier of manhood, cars are central to Fleury’s work.
In her first exhibition at Art & Public in Geneva (1993), Fleury presented a 1967 Buick Skylark as sculpture. After the exhibition ended, the artist drove the car for many years and it became a central element in the evolution of her practice.
