Always pushing boundaries with a playful charm that oscillates between seduction and repulsion, art and fashion, the Cuddly Book by Sylvie Fleury adopts a materialistic language used by commercial industry to target the feminine market by pushing found or purchased items beyond the obvious with a sharp and often provocative humor.

Taking a departure from the artist’s faux fur projects of the early 90s that explored gender and ambivalence, Sylvie Fleury has created the Cuddly Book with pages that have been entirely conceived with a selection of intensely colored furs; an iconic superficial material of contemporary fashion that the artist has frequently employed.

These “pages” are bound with colored imitation leather, making this monumental book a definitively new and tantalizing work.
