Annette Messager: motion/emotion
Annette Messager is an internationally renowned French artist whose diverse practice encompasses drawing, artist’s books, photography, sculpture and installation. At once playful and disturbing, Messager’s works employ everyday materials and objects in their realisation, from woollen gloves and items of clothing, to black netting, soft toys and badges. Featuring works from the late 1970s to the present, motion/emotion represents the artist’s first retrospective exhibition in Australia and includes her large kinetic installations with mechanical and inflatable elements.
Produced to coincide with the exhibition the full colour, hardcover catalogue includes director's forewords by Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE and S.E.M Stephane Romatet and essays by senior curator Rachel Kent and Patricia Falguieres.Publisher: Museum of Contemporary Art Australia
