Annette Messager

Mon Guide du Tricot


"Artist-collector and handywoman, Annette Messager has made nearly sixty “collection albums” between 1972 and 1974. Inspired by words, writings and images, the artist has created her albums from an accumulation of texts, photographs, notes and miscellaneous items, cautiously collected and sorted. Sometimes carefully glued in notebooks, sometimes gathered in bulk folders, Annette Messager’s albums all have a title, handwritten by the artist... Mon guide du tricot is one of these albums, in which Annette Messager gathers a series of knitting techniques, through annotated photographs and schematic drawings. Two cardboards slid in the album show a woman wearing a mohair sweater and a man a suiza sweater. Each of these boards has its own thread sample." -- courtesy of the publisher
