Covering the retrospective show on Sophie Calle, this book sheds light on her powerful iconoclastic work and help you better understand her unique artistic approach.
The work of conceptual artist Sophie Calle embraces multiple media: photography, storytelling, movies, and memoir, to name a few. Calle explores hot-button issues such as voyeurism, intimacy, and identity by investigating and documenting on the lives of strangers. Wearing many different hats - detective, documentarian, behavioural scientist and diarist - Sophie Calle is connecting art to life.
The book features Calle's best-known works, including The Blind, No Sex Last Night, The Hotel, The Address Book and A Woman Vanishes, as well as previously unseen images. Photographs, diary excerpts and video stills sit alongside three critical essays, and intimate interviews with the artist and with fellow artist Damien Hirst.
