I was recently introduced to the work of French artist Annette Messager, known mainly for her installation pieces which consist of a wide array of materials, such as colored pencils, photographs, stuffed animals, crayons, metal, books, and embroidery. Morbid, playful, and bizarre, Messager has been a proponent of feminist art for well over 30 years now. Her work is insane! She mashes up both high and low art, the beautiful and the ugly. 

Here, she creates internal organs out of brightly colored fabrics and strings them from the ceiling.

Penetration, 1993-94
