Sophie Calle

SOPHIE CALLE

Sophie Calle (Paris, 1953) is a French artist who, since the late 70s, has exhibited widely all around the world. Often identified as a conceptual artist, photographer, cinema director and even detective, has developed a practice immediately recognizable for its various narrative elements as well as the frequent combination of image and text. Each of her projects can be understood as a chapter within a vast set of references and echoes, where Calle a often blurs the boundaries between the intimate and the public, reality and fiction, art and life. In 2007 represented France at the 52nd Venice Biennale with the exhibition Take care of yourself.
