The second in a series of dialogues between Darian Leader, psychoanalyst and author of Stealing the Mona Lisa: What Art Stops Us From Seeing, and prominent international artists. Tonight, Leader meets Paris-based artist Sophie Calle. Calle has been called a detective and a voyeur for the investigation techniques that she uses in her photographs and performances. In 1998 Calle was asked to curate an exhibition, Appointment, at Freud s London home; she accepted after seeing a vision of her wedding dress laid across Freud s sofa. Calle s work has been shown in museums around the world, including Tate, ICA Boston and Musee d Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Paul Auster famously used elements of Calle s life for the character Maria in his novel Leviathan, which in turn inspired Calle s Gotham Handbook.
