    Sophie Calle often describes herself as a «narrative» artist. Her photo­graphs are exhibits through which she tells stories that are ordinary yet a little disturbing. Her prime material is her own life and her own experiences, reconstructed between reality and fiction: lending her bed to strangers and photographing them in their sleep; following someone in their every move; or taking a journal she found to retrace the life of a stranger. The work of this artist cultivates both fiction and secret and voyeurism and exhibitionism.
