Syz Art Jewels presents Magnifying by Sylvie Fleury

Bringing new life to the conservative format of jewelry display and presentation, Suzanne Syz, founder of Syz Art Jewels, invites contemporary artists to reenvision the jewelry box as sculpture. In the third project in this ongoing series, Magnifying, Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury not only designed a jewelry box in a shape she has been working with for many years, but also created an immersive environment that interacts with the work to create a Happening, incorporating the visitor into the work and bringing the project to a new dimension. Visitors become jewels themselves when interacting with Fleury’s installation, whether sitting on a blow-up brooch display or looking at themselves in the mirror of a giant watch holder, while nearby a huge earring stand serves as a lamp. “It is possible that at times we’ve all dreamt about diving into a shop window,” says Fleury. “These objects take on the size of our imagination and Suzanne Syz magnifi es that with her jewels.”
