“Just Jacuzzi” an exhibition by Sylvie Fleury at Company Gallery, New York

“Just Jacuzzi” is an exhibition of sculpture, painting and video focused around two installations. Fleury painted the canvases on the floor, interweaving sinuous filaments of gold and silver over the course of one single painting session. Each is accessorized with a braided chain handle and in a private runway show, prior to the exhibition opening to the public, carried down the runway under the arm of a model to be hung nonchalantly on a single screw. Counter to the fashion industry’s commandments of radical evolution and individual expression, the models are all styled in the same matching outfits. The paintings are near-identical to those made 15 years ago. The one-off event of the runway show is made into a ritual.

On view from January 24 to March 2 at Company Gallery, New York
