Annette Messager – Penetration

October 22, 2007

Penetration

Penetration 1993-94

Installation
sewn and stuffed fabric elements, angora wool, eight lights
overall (variable) 500.0 (h) x 500.0 (w) x 1100.0 (d) cm

Annette Messager works in such a diverse range of media that it seems no artist is immune to finding inspiration in her work. Brightly coloured organs hanging from the ceiling, what more could you want! At one stage i was trying to create soft sculpture organs through thermoplastic moulding and when i discovered Messager i felt like i was suddenly looking in the mirror. I think for now i’ll leave the 3D organs up to her.
