I don't know how Annette Messager dodged my radar for so long, but her work is amazing. She is one of those artists who is a true interdisciplinary genius. Her retrospective is featured at the Hayward Gallery on the Southbank until May 25th, and I urge anyone who is visiting London to see it. It's a real treat. Work exhibited includes hundreds of drawings, sculpture, and lots of really humorous kinetic installations. Keep your eye out on the brown sac of a bear being dragged around in circles. Made me laugh.
Here's a link to the Guardian where there are nice images of the show and an interview with the artist.
