And the auction catalogue of Hôtel Drouot
Texts in French: Sophie Calle
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso, the Parisian museum dedicated to the painter invited Sophie Calle to take over the Hôtel Salé. As part of this exhibition, Sophie Calle has chosen to showcase the “succession” of her possessions. The Drouot auction house then took part in the game by establishing 482 lots among the artist's personal belongings: from her furniture to her crockery, from her stuffed animals to her collection of art works, all published in a catalog as is customary at an auction. To complete this artistic gesture, the artist imagined an Erratum with the catalog of the Hôtel Drouot: identical in format, this erratum reveals other keys to reading. Sophie Calle has chosen more than 100 pieces from among her possessions, the hidden history of which she reveals. Objects offered or exchanged with other artists, or collected during her travels or received as an inheritance: over the course of these stories another story emerges which recounts moments of private life, romantic or artistic encounters, secrets sometimes.
