Ma Collection de Champignons bons et de Champignons Mortels

description

"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... Ma collection de champignons bons et de champignons mortels is one of these albums, where Annette Messager has drawn a variety of colorful mushrooms, as if she was a botanist, precising for each if it is toxic or not. The good and the toxic mushrooms are presented on the same pages, only the words "bons" (good) and "mortels" (deadly) in red allow us to differentiate them." -- courtesy of the publisher
