Text by Marion Ackermann and Florence Thurmes

Annette Messager’s installations create a visually stunning space for contemplation about the reconstitution of gender in contemporary society. Throughout a forty-year career, Messager has engaged with a variety of media: In the 1970s, she worked mainly in collaged and knitted works, with stuffed birds as a recurring motif. Later, she broadened to media such as drawings, photographs, and installations with a strong focus on clothes and plush figures. A complex, pictorial language connects the French conceptual artist’s work, as well as an overriding interest in how delicate components can be fragmented and recombined to form something new.
