True Stories

October 30-February 13 2011

Sophie Calle's award winner's exhibition at the Hasselblad Center shows the artist's ongoing series "True Stories", a suite of photographs begun in 1988. It comprises some thirty large, often black-and-white pictures accompanied by framed texts. The works capture the artist's fantasies, private childhood memories and romances that have blossomed and faded.

We follow Calle from adolescence to adulthood. She examines her love affairs with an archeologist's approach: the objects depicted are finds discovered in the remains of past relationships. She photographs them in a straightforward manner, everyday objects before a white background-clothing, unmade beds, notes on scraps of paper-presented like priceless collector's items. Calle's careful mapping of past relationships is a manifestation of the empty void left by those who have disappeared from her life. After the breakup they become forever unattainable, and she is driven by the desire to regain the coveted and inaccessible past.

Calle's work often has the character of a personal diary that tells of human vulnerability and intimacy. Her "True Stories" are depictions of a deeply private world. She portrays themes such as unhappy love and dissatisfaction with her own appearance in a factual, analytical way. At the same time, these works can seduce us with tales of romantic escapades and humor. She tickles viewers by exposing her intimate fantasies and loves for voyeuristic observation in a public context. Her photographs leave the viewer with traces of bittersweet passion and nostalgia. These autobiographical works seize upon photography's fundamental ability to capture time passed and to immortalize memories.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Hasselblad Foundation and Steidl are publishing a new catalogue, Sophie Calle: True Stories-the 2010 Hasselblad Award, with a preface by curator Gunilla Knape and a new text by Sophie Calle.
