Take Care of Yourself

Sophie Calle


‘I received an email telling me it was over. I didn’t know how to respond. It was as if it wasn’t meant for me. It ended with the words: “Take Care of Yourself”. I took this recommendation literally. I asked a hundred and two women, chosen for their profession, to interpret the letter in their professional capacity. To analyse it, provide a commentary on it, act it, dance it, sing it. Dissect it. Squeeze it dry. Understand for me. Answer for me. It was a way to take the time to break up. At my own pace. A way to take care of myself.’

This superbly designed book accompanied Sophie Calle’s exhibition in the French pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2007. It comprises three books – one main volume, two smaller inside that – and four accompanying DVDs

Includes 107 interpretations by a range of successful female professionals, from leading actors and dancers to physicists, psychoanalysts and lawyers.
