Annette Messager


The French artist Annette Messager (b. 1943) is one of the most import ant personalities of the international art scene. Her extensive installations focus on the human body and its attributes. Fragmented and joined together again with thread to form something new, she thereby creates a cosmos that is both fascinating and radi cal. In more than 40 years of artistic creativity Annette Messager has developed her own, concentrated pictorial language. In the early 1970s she still worked mainly with stuffed birds, knitting and picture collections; later these were complemented by dr awings, photographs and installations with soft toys and clothes. By assembling and arranging the most delicate of elements she produces visually stunning works on the gender clich├ęs of contemporary society. This bibliophile’s art book reproduces the late st installations in addition to her most impressive works. It is published to accompany the first solo exh ibition in a German museum for 2 5 years and provides an opportunity to rediscover the oe uvre of Annette Messager.
