We are pleased to announce Sylvie Fleury as the guest editor for issue #14.
YES TO ALL is Fleury's framework for the open call.
Originating as a computer command, YES TO ALL is a recurring theme in Fleury's oeuvre used to comment on an increasingly uncontrollable consumer desire.
For issue 14, Fleury proposes to use YES TO ALL as a paradoxical leitmotif for selecting submissions. Fleury aims to challenge familiar photographic structural tropes of 'families', 'categories' and other groupings with the submitted material, by collapsing these very notions through the inclusivity YES TO ALL calls for.

Engaging with the mechanics of materialistic desire, aesthetics and the construction of value, Sylvie Fleury's sleek, alluring works provide a lens through which contemporary politics of gender, beauty and consumerism can be re-evaluated. Fleury's diverse practice encompasses a variety of media and references, including luxury clothing, accessories and cosmetics, magazine covers, the world of Formula 1 racing, spaceships and icons of modern art.
The Swiss artist was born in 1961 in Geneva, where she lives and works. Fleury has had numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. In 2018 she was awarded Switzerland's Prix Meret Oppenheim and in 2015 received the Société des Arts de Genève Prize. Her work is held in international institutions.
