: With Blind
, French conceptual artist Sophie Calle (born 1953) revisits three earlier works constructed around the idea of blindness. In âLes Aveuglesâ (âThe Blindâ), created in 1986, she questioned blind people on their representation of beauty; in 1991, in âLa Couleur Aveugleâ (âBlind Colorâ), she asked blind people about their imagination of perception and compared their descriptions to artistsâ musings on the monochrome; âLa DerniÃ¨re Imageâ (âThe Last Imageâ), produced in 2010 in Istanbul, involved questioning people who had lost their sight on the last image they could remember. By establishing a dialectic between the testimonies of several generations of blind people and Calleâs photographs based on these accounts, the artist offers readers a reflection on absence, on the loss of one sense and the compensation of another and on the notion of the visible and the invisible.
