Sophie Calle, one of France's leading
contemporary artists, creates a site-specific
installation for Crossing the
Line in a room of the luxurious Lowell
Hotel, located on New York City's Upper
The autobiographical work features an
array of objects of particular significance
to the artist, helping viewers to
construct their own story of her life.
"Invited to exhibit in a hotel… I have
chosen to introduce, in the room assigned
to me, several objects that hold
a sentimental place in my life, and that I
have used for my autobiographical narratives."—Sophie Calle
This event is part of Fiction & Non-Fiction, one of Crossing the Line 2011's three curatorial program perspectives.
