Made By: Annette Messager (Expired)

Image Gallery


Prominent 20th-century artist Annette Messager will be in Greece for the opening of her exhibition in the Eliades Gallery. Using easy-to-find materials, such as coloured pencils, fabrics, socks, sewing items, newspaper clippings, Annette creates a net that keeps objects entrapped, while also letting them stand out.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see some of the artist’s personally-selected representative works from the last two decades. The exhibition includes an installation entitled “My desires under the net”, which shows framed black and white images of human body parts covered by a net. Another piece on display, “Votives”, uses objects related to fetishes, identity, and sexuality, combining soft and sharp materials to emphasise the duality of human nature and life itself.
