The Fotomuseum Winterthur dedicates a monograph exhibition to the artist, writer and photographer Sophie Calle, known all around the world for her unique use of photography, often combined with word, texts and installations in order to explore an intimacy that belongs to her is autobiography as well as to strangers, which she pursues with a detective-like spirit.
This anthology, a selection of works the artist has produced over the past 15 years, outlines how absence is represented using images which have disappeared and removed from sight. The works translate Sophie Calle’s creativity into a distinctive and unique experience.
