One of the most important contemporary artists working in Europe, Annette Messager fragments images and language to explore the concept of fiction, the dialogue between individual and collective identity, and the social issues of normalcy, morality, and the role of women. In her work she forcefully illustrates the idea that all things — a child’s beloved toy, a photograph, a piece of embroidery, a word with seemingly unambiguous meaning — can be transformed into objects of potent expression.

The concept behind my first project was to illustrate in a non literal sense the progression an animal makes from living organism to edible, and the fact that the essential identity of the animal flesh does not change even though the name transforms. The tessellated origami form  was used to convey a sense of structural soundness, essentially creating an atmospheric “world”, a representation of the throat through which the animal, in the form of meat, passes through.
