Mixed-Media Installations by Annette Messager

“Mainly known for her installation work, French artist Annette Messager often incorporates photographs, prints and drawing into a final sculptural project.”

Messager was one of the first artists I discovered at uni and she’s one of the few who’s stuck with me. If you’re interested in language, and the construction of words / self and the “storying” of the world around us (ie: fairytales, fables etc), you need to be aware of the work of Messager. Here are two articles which give a bit more info on Messager - she’s well worth knowing about.
