Synopsis: The definitive monograph of Annette Messager, covering her multifaceted oeuvre from immersive installations to intricate taxidermy, now updated and expanded in collaboration with the artist.

Book Description Die Künstlerin (Jg. 1943) zählt zu den vielseitigsten und international angesehensten Künstlerinnen aus Frankreich, ihre Arbeiten sind ein beunruhigendes, poetisches und anzügliches Spiel mit Dingen und Gedanken, die scheinbar nicht zusammenpassen. Puppen, Knochen oder Tierköpfe werden auf unkonventionelle Weise mit Stoffen und Fotografien zu fröhlich-grausamen Installationen zusammen gefügt. Ihre künstlerischen Äußerungen beziehen auch Malerei und Film und Fotografie mit ein. Dieses retrospektiv angelegte Buch besticht durch das umfangreiche Material: Interviews, ausführliche Vita, Ausstellungschronologie und natürlich das zahlreiche Bildmaterial bieten eine Fülle Informationen über Leben und Karriere der Annette Messager. Gemeinsam mit der Künstlerin überarbeitet, präsentiert der Band eine Künstlerin, die im Kontext der aktuellen internationalen Kunst auf den ersten Rängen zu nennen wäre. Eine Inspiration für alle, die den Puls der aktuellen Kunst fühlen wollen. (Text engl.) 24,5 x 29 cm, 240 Seiten, zahlr. farb. Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 609374

Book Description Editions Flammarion. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Annette Messager (2nd Revised edition), Catherine Grenier, The definitive monograph of Annette Messagers multifaceted oeuvre from immersive installations to intricate taxidermy, now updated in collaboration with the artist. Annette Messagers original use of form and the poetic power of communication place her among Europes leading contemporary artists. Born and raised in northern France where everybody made art, she went to study at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Paris in the early 1960s. There she quickly rejected any hierarchical notion of art form in favor of a freedom of expression inspired initially by Jean Dubuffet and the outsider art he promoted. Since the late 1960s, she has experimented with and combined a wide variety of media, from painting and sculpture to assemblage, photography, film, and embroidery, often culminating in installations of great potency. From her early works playing with fictional autobiography to her commanding, penetrable installations, her work is at once intimate and universal, using familiar objects (toys, fishing nets, gloves) in a manner that challenges us to look at the comforts of our world with fresh eyes. For this monograph, the author has worked closely with the artist to produce a strong, visual work that provides a clear picture of the creative development of a major artist working today. The edition is further enriched by new text and images that analyze the artists recent work, including her installation Casino at the 2005 Venice Biennale, and the exhibition Les Messagers at the Centre Pompidou in 2007. Fully illustrated, including a 34-page introductory portfolio featuring key installations, the book offers a thematically-organized text incorporating first-hand interviews with the artist as well as analyses of the significance of individual works. Completed by a chronology of exhibitions and an extensive bibliography, Annette Messager is a must-read for anyone interested in current artistic developments in Europe.
