the men i love

This series is inspired by Annette Messager. In the 1970s, Messager made a scrapbook called The Men I Love. She tore out pages of magazines that showed glamorous Hollywood stars and rough Marlboro men, all men who she had never met, but who she was “supposed” to swoon over. She also assembled a companion book called The Men I Do Not Love.

The artist H.C. Westermann was known for his acrobatic strength, seen on top. He also had Naval tattoos and drew a lot of “death ships.” Sounds like an adult-teenager, a type that I know too well.
