Sophie Calle - L'Hôtel / Voir la mer
This exhibition presents eight video works (Voir la mer, 2011) and six photographic pieces (L’Hôtel, 1981-1983), bearing witness to Calle’s defining work, ranging from self-investigative encounters of the 1980s to the altruistic investigations of recent years.
Sophie Calle is one of today’s leading artists, incorporating writing, photography, philosophy and visual arts. A self-taught artist, she is critically acclaimed for her serial artworks in photography, video and text.
Through these two series, Calle invites the viewer as a witness to her creative sojourns, unwittingly converting one from an innocent bystander into a complicit voyeur and intimate collaborator. Demolishing the boundaries between performance and adventure, the anonymous and the intimate, the permitted and the forbidden, she offers a safe place to reflect on one’s habitual practices, material possessions and own purpose.
