The Bernier/Eliades Gallery is pleased to invite you to the solo show of Annette Messager “mes Transports” on Wednesday, April 24th, 18:00 - 21:00 in Brussels in presence of the artist. “mes transports” is composed of multiple sculptures combining body parts, geometrical forms, animals and various objects which are wrapped in black mat foil. These elements are displayed on wooden trolleys cushioned by folded removal blankets. These transports are in essence as real as they are metaphorical: showing the transportation of goods, of love, of blood and joy. “Blankets are used to protect them and to soften their journey whilst being transported. Some of them are playful, other sinister but together they create a dark humor. Even as separate entities, isolated on their own transports, there could be a dialogue between the artworks. Human body parts, animals, and grotesque characters regress to their own childhood.”
