n°5 - Annette Messager

Annette Messager is a French artist who lives and
works outside of Paris, France. Since the 1970s she
has been creating works of art from a «woman’s»
point of view using everyday objects, photographs,
the body, intimate relationships…
In this issue, she dresses up her grimacing friends
with dissected articles of clothing and the skins of
stuffed animals, or wraps them up in colorful plastic
bags. These familiar monsters seem mischievously
light-hearted yet are somehow disturbing, full of
both tenderness and grave intentions. Frozen for an
instant by the spell of her camera, they await the
stroke of midnight to dance their danse macabre.
«C’est pas au vieux singe qu’on apprend à faire la
grimace» (Don’t teach your grandmother how to
suck eggs) is the title of Annette Messager’s exhibition
at the Museum of African and Oceanic Arts in Paris
from April 1 to June 29, 1998.
