Giulietta is classic Sylvie Fleury; from the depiction of an American automobile (a fascination of the artists’ since her first car, a 1968 Chevy Camaro) through her use of designer clothing and jewelry as signs and signifiers commenting on consumer and popular culture, to the historical/art historical double entendre and ambiguity of the title of the work.  Are we viewing a contemporary Juliet (Giulietta)?
