Since the end of the 70s, Sophie Calle has been the subject of numerous exhibitions throughout the world. Also described as a conceptual artist, photographer, video artist and even detective, she has developed an immediately recognizable practice, combining text and photography to nourish a narrative that is her own. Her works form a vast system of echoes and internal references, connected to each other like the chapters of an overall work in which Sophie Calle sometimes blurs the boundaries between the intimate and the public, reality and fiction, art and life. Her work meticulously orchestrates an underlying reality - her own or that of others - while leaving room for chance.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso, she has been given carte blanche for the Hôtel Salé and a chance to deploy her universe in dialogue with the artist whose commemorative celebrations will be in full swing in a multitude of places outside the museum’s walls.
Located in the heart of the historic and trendy Marais, the Musée national Picasso-Paris is a must-see among the great Parisian museums.
