Three photographs from the portfolio Woman and Drawing indicatively show the French artist Anette Messager’s preoccupation with the position of women in society during the second half of the twentieth century. Drawing the digestive system on her naked body, by her refined moves and the “strategic” position of her hands, she contributes to the “impression of seriousness and the trueness of the work”.
