Calle




My parents just left from a little autumn visit. Friday we went to Louisiana. My parents mainly went there to see the big Keifer exhibit. I mainly went unprepared. And we all ended up disappointed by Kiefer and inspired by Sophie Calle and her imaginative, innovative and beautiful projects. The pictures are from her project Take Care of Yourself where a number of women interpret an email from Sophie Calles lover where he breaks it off with her. They are all from different professions and interpret the letter according to their background. I want to own and hang one of those photos on my wall!
Now i have to apologise that this is a very bad recommendation since the exhibit ends TODAY! But look her up if you cross her path (and go TODAY if you are anywhere near Louisiana)! it was a very inspiring experience!

▶ Ida: Ja det bliver mere og mere forvirrende. Men ud over at være en sød rød panda og en sød lille jordbærkage, så er hun også en meget sød tiger!
Fenke: I love to imagine you sitting at your computer and shrieking!
▶ Rotsax: I think its a very popular suit :) Everyone wants to see their baby as a tiger
B: Vi sætter dem begge på toget i aften, så kan du låne dem hele ugen :)
▶ Flora: We are on a waitinglist for daycare, but there is a big shortage in our area so for now we are drawing on the help of family and friends to take care of her. Luckily D can also stay home with her a whole day.
Wera: Thank you! all the pink letters are falling of the amplifier. we need to fix something new
▶ David Johan: Thank you so much
Ai: Thank you so much. Yes i like them quite alot too.
▶ Puer Kim: thanks!
Millo: jep, og intet er bedre til at understrege det end en matchende tigerdragt

Det er nogle rigtig fine billeder. Jeg så et billede fra udstillingen, med en ballerina, der læser mailen, - så fint... Desværre er der så langt fra Århus til Louisiana...

Lyder som en fed udstilling! Øv, desværre nåede jeg ikke til DK. Håber udstillingen kommer forbi Sydtyskland!

Jeg var også inde og se udstillingerne her i ferien, og havde den præcis samme oplevelse. Kiefers billeder var meget overvældende mens man var der, men efter jeg kom hjem er det Calles billeder og projekter der blev ved med at sidde fast og komme op igen. Meget inspirerende!

I love the work of Sophie Calle. Last summer, in Brussels, there was an retrospective, great ! Some books exist in English (Take Care of Yourself, Double Game, Exquisite pain...).

Jeg elskede virkelig også Sophie Calle. Så fin og sej udstilling.

Calle var fantastisk! Jag blev som hypnotiserad när jag gick runt och läste alla dessa kvinnors tolkningar av brevet. Och den där grejen med sängen, som hon skickade över halva jorden för att en man ville sova i den medan han kom över en kärlekshistoria.
!
Man kommer att huske den länge, eller hur?

I love Sophie Calle. Apart from her work on paper I can also recommend her movie No Sex Last Night/Double Game. Really endearing humor in there, I giggled a lot.

I went to Sophie Calle's exhibition in London earlier this year. I really enjoyed it, especially 'The Address Book' and also a piece where she let people (friends and strangers) sleep in her bed.
