Ma collection de proverbes / whichever word
Past: November 15, 2012 → January 19, 2013Annette Messager à la galerie Michèle Didier En marge de l’exposition d'envergure que lui consacre le musée d'Art moderne et contemporain de Strasbourg, la galerie Michèle Didi... Critique
whichever word, a new neon text by Maurizio Nannucci, produced and published by mfc-michèle didier in 2012, will be presented jointly with Ma collection de proverbes by Annette Messager. Indeed, the publisher continues the great project of publishing the famous collection-albums made by the artist between 1972 and 1974.
Both works show a common interest for words and colors. whichever word is published in blue, yellow and red — the three primary colors that have to be mixed to render all the wide range of natural colors. The color is here more important than the word… whichever word. With whichever word comes an anthology of all the neon writings the artist has realized since 1967 until 2012. Ma collection de proverbes also shows colorful words. They are embroidered on pieces of fabric and have been rigorously selected by Annette Messager because of their “misogynistic” character; they are proverbs that remind us of the violence a text can sometimes express.
