Rachel, Monique - Limited Edition

Rachel, Monique - Limited Edition

Conceived by Sophie Calle, this limited edition has been created from the original French version of the book. The English translation of the texts has been stamped on each page, by hand, in red ink.

Sophie Calle describes Monique through extracts from personal notebooks and photographs from family albums, and presents her installation created at the Palais de Tokyo in homage to her mother, who passed away in 2007. It is a highly personal and moving book, while at the same time offering thoughts on death that all of us can relate to. This book was above all designed as an authentic art object, in collaboration with the artist. The cover text is embroidered and all of the texts relating to the installation are embossed so as to evoke the texture of some works by Sophie Calle.
