The look of Sophie Calle

Sophie Calle

“Modus vivendi”. This is the title of the last adventure of the French artist Sophie Calle, whose works occupy several rooms of the Palau de la Virreina of Barcelona, in a unique retrospective that traces the last thirty years of her career.

Image and narrative merge in photographs, books, videos and performances that select moments of the lives of people where Sophie sees potential “so that they can hang on a wall or explain in a book”; tell us this genius, turned into literary character by Paul Auster and herself, who does not hide the autobiographical overtones that dot her work among her own fantasies.
