Sophie Calle (b.1953) is a French artist whose work
Prenez Soin de Vous (Take Care of Yourself, 2007) will
be shown at EMMA in its English version as a wide
compilation of video films and photographs. The work
gets its name from the last words of an e-mail sent by
Calle’s ex-boyfriend ending their relationship. Mixing
private and public life is characteristic of Calle’s work.
