Annette Messager uses unorthodox materials to form evocative artworks that often challenge societal roles assigned to women and the nature of identity. Commenting on her choice of materials – which have included stuffed animals, plastic bags and human hair – she explains that ‘I like things made with scraps, fragments, things set aside: leftovers, remnants’. In this sculptural work from 2009, Messager uses gloves and coloured pencils to form a ghoulish skull. Gloves-Head was exhibited in Messager’s solo exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, in 2009.
