– Annette Messager: motion / emotion

Annette Messager is an internationally renowned French artist whose diverse practice encompasses drawing, photography, sculpture and installation. Featuring works from the late 1970’s to the present, this represents the artist’s first retrospective exhibition in Australia and includes her large kinetic installations with mechanical and inflatable elements. 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.
