: As multi-faceted as the artist herself, this stunningly illustrated book on Sophie Calleâs recent installations displays her genius for entwining personal experience with universal truth. Throughout her career, the photographer and installation artist Sophie Calle has been creating tableaux that recreate her personal journeys. Projects from the past 10 years are explored in this magnificently illustrated volume. Following on the heels of Calleâs highly acclaimed Did You See Me?
this new book offers numerous images of Calleâs most recent works. Among the projects included are âThe Phone Booth, Garigiliano Bridge,â which involved a public phone that Calle called at random to initiate conversations with strangers; âTake Care of Yourself,â which documents the interpretations of more than 100 women of a breakup note Calle received from a former lover; âThe North Pole,â a touching tribute to the artistâs mother that imagines her realizing a lifelong dream; and the latest iteration of âWhat do You See,â which was created in response to one of the most brazen art heists of all time, at Bostonâs Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Many ongoing series are also illustrated here, including âUnfinished,â âHerein Lie Secrets,â and âPhotos without Stories.â Calleâs many fans will discover how the artist continues to examine the boundaries of public and private life in ways that surprise, engage, and inspire.
