Fotografie - Aantal: 1 - Gesigneerd, Stofomslag - Boek

An artist's book combining texts and photographs in a beautiful copy of the very first edition with its dust jacket and signed by Sophie Calle.

Sophie Calle was born in 1953, and her work as an artist consists in making her life, and especially her most intimate moments, an artwork.

In 1981, Sophie Calle was hired as a maid in a Venice hotel. "After a one year procedure for a three-week replacement." She is in charge of the cleaning and, day after day, during the stay of various guests, she inspects the trash, searches the guests’ luggage, reads their papers and letters and takes photographs of the rooms and objects. She then writes a written account. After a few weeks, her replacement ends and here is the result of such production.

Sophie Calle is a "history maker" according to writer and photographic critic Hervé Guibert. Her stories take the form of a game and lead to a photographic and literary production that questions intimacy, identity and absence through a kind of voyeurism and espionage.
