Annette Messager
b. 1943 (Berck-sur-Mer, FR), lives and works in Malakoff, FR

Her award for Best Pavilion at the 2005 Venice Biennale reflects the recognition of an artistic oeuvre, represented in many collections and archives, that constantly explores the driving forces in our society and the relationships between men and women with a fresh, critical and humorous approach. Photography is just one of the many media she uses in her frequently large-scale installations.
