Project 3 Sophie Calle

She clearly is a very talented artist, who can work/perform across multiple disciplines. Looking at her work though, I am unsure at first how she made money!

Following a man and dressing up, disguising herself, was one of her first projects. This is a cracking project well thought through, slightly insane and may even be called stalking these days.

She is not afraid to bare her soul, not body, and does so in a way which exposes herself to answers she may not like.

Her projects are attacked with a statisticians viewpoint, at times, canvassing the feelings of many a person, including in one case a parrot!!!

Her mind must always be working and looking for an artistic angle in all aspects of her life.

Suffering becomes a medium through which she can make art and must be part of the healing project and it is clearly a cathartic exercise for her. This is a common theme with artists of this ilk and one I can understand, given my own creation for my childhood memory.
