Retrospective of Works by Sophie Calle to Open at Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels
BRUSSELS.- The exhibition is a retrospective of works tracing the story of her life. Calle Sophie is arranged chronologically and comprises twenty autobiographical projects.

Sophie Calle is at once a writer, a narrative artist, a photographer, a filmmaker and sometimes even a detective. She inhabits these roles interchangeably and switches personas in order to play different characters, invent rituals and tell autobiographical stories. Her work usually consists of a combination of photographs and text and often adopts the format of an investigation. Staging herself as the focus of her art, she seamlessly mixes personal life and artistic fiction. She invents the rules of the game as she goes along so as to "improve life" and give it structure and meaning.

The exhibition at the Centre for Fine Arts is a retrospective of works tracing the story of her life. The show Calle Sophie is arranged chronologically and comprises twenty autobiographical projects. A voice leads visitors through the exhibition and tells the “true story of Sophie Calle”, suspended midway between autobiography and legend.

Sophie Calle was born in 1953 and lives and works in Paris . In 2004 she had a one-person exhibition entitled M’as-tu vue at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. She represented France at the Venice Biennale in 2007 with Prenez soin de vous, and was also invited by the Artistic Coordinator of the Biennale to show her work in the international pavilion. Prenez soin de vous traveled to the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris, and DHC/ART, Montréal.
