Take Care of Yourself by Sophie Calle, 2007
Medium: Mixed Mediums
Sophie Calle's exhibition Take Care of Yourself debuted at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. The installation, which consisted of a mass of video, photographs, and written text, was influenced by a single letter received from a lover leaving her. Of the body of work, Calle said "I received an email telling me it was over. I didn't know how to respond. It was almost as if it hadn't been meant for me. It ended with the words, "Take care of yourself." And so I did.
