Sophie Calle

FOR THE LAST AND FIRST TIME


THE LAST IMAGE

I went to Istanbul. I spoke to blind people, most of whom had lost their sight suddenly. I asked them to describe the last thing they saw.


VOIR LA MER

I went to Istanbul, a city surrounded by water, I met people who had never seen the sea. I filmed their first time.

Yves Géant - Sophie Calle.


Sophie Calle

Born in 1953 in Paris, France.

Lives and works in Malakoff, France.


Sophie Calle’s work, which combines image and narrative, amounts to a systematic laying bare of reality, whether it be her own or other people’s, with a limited portion left to chance. Absence is a central theme in her work.
