La Visite Guidee


Exhibition catalogue / artist's book with Audio CD published in conjunction with show held March 27 - May 29, 1994. Book consists of color images of items from Calle's life / art paired with artist's texts accompanied by an Audio CD on which Calle speaks, in English, about the objects with music by Laurie Anderson. "In the Spring of 1994 a walkman offered visitors a guided tour of the museum a part of Sophie Calle's exhibition 'Absent', held from March 27 tot [sic] may 29, 1994. To the accompaniment of music by Laurie Anderson, the listener was lead past Calle's personal possessions, supplemented by autobiographical notes and scattered throughout the museum. We decided to preserve the temporary character of the arrangement by publishing a book of the objects and the accompanying texts. The companion CD re-enacts the tour for everyone." -- from book's preface.
