As multi-faceted as the artist herself, this stunningly illustrated book on Sophie Calle's recent installations displays her genius for entwining personal experience with universal truth. Throughout her career, the photographer and installation artist Sophie Calle has been creating tableaux that recreate her personal journeys. Projects from the past 10 years are explored in this magnificently illustrated volume. Following on the heels of Calle's highly acclaimed Did You See Me? this new book offers numerous images of Calle's most recent works. Among the projects included are "The Phone Booth, Garigiliano Bridge," which involved a public phone that Calle called at random to initiate conversations with strangers; "Take Care of Yourself," which documents the interpretations of more than 100 women of a breakup note Calle received from a former lover; "The North Pole," a touching tribute to the artist's mother that imagines her realizing a lifelong dream; and the latest iteration of "What do You See," which was created in response to one of the most brazen art heists of all time, at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Many ongoing series are also illustrated here, including "Unfinished," "Herein Lie Secrets," and "Photos without Stories." Calle's many fans will discover how the artist continues to examine the boundaries of public and private life in ways that surprise, engage, and inspire.

What does artistic resistance look like in the twenty-first century, when disruption and dissent have been co-opted and commodified in ways that reinforce dominant systems? In The Play in the System Anna Watkins Fisher locates the possibility for resistance in artists who embrace parasitism—tactics of complicity that effect subversion from within hegemonic structures. Fisher tracks the ways in which artists on the margins—from hacker collectives like Ubermorgen to feminist writers and performers like Chris Kraus—have willfully abandoned the radical scripts of opposition and refusal long identified with anticapitalism and feminism. Space for resistance is found instead in the mutually, if unevenly, exploitative relations between dominant hosts giving only as much as required to appear generous and parasitical actors taking only as much as they can get away with. The irreverent and often troubling works that result raise necessary and difficult questions about the conditions for resistance and critique under neoliberalism today.

The Reclining Nude

The figure of a woman reclining, in repose, displayed, abandoned, fallen, asleep, or dreaming, returns in the work of women filmmakers and photographers in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Filmmakers Agnès Varda and Catherine Breillat, and American photographer working in Paris, Nan Goldin, return to the paintings of Titian, Velázquez, Goya, Courbet, and others, re-imagining, and re-purposing, their images of female beauty, display, (auto)eroticism, and intimacy. This book, a sensuous evocation of these feminist works, claims a female-identified pleasure in looking. The artists explored align images of repose and sensuality with other images of horizontality and proneness, of strong emotional content, images of erotic involvement, of vulnerability, of bodily contortion, of listlessness, grief, and depression. The reclining nude is for all three artists a starting point for a reflection on the relation of film, projections, and still photography, to painting, and a sustained re-imagining of the meanings conjured through serial returns to a particular pose. This book claims that the image of the reclining nude is compelling, for female-identified artists - and for all allied in feeling and picturing femininity - in the sensitive, ethically adventurous, politically complex feminist issues it engages. The reclining nude is an image of passivity, of submission, of hedonism. It allows thought about passivity as pleasure, about depression and grief figured posturally, about indolence as a form of resistance and anarchy. Through this image, female-identified artists have claimed freedom to offer new focus on these extremes of emotion. They are re-imagining horizontality.

Flooding the Limits of Thought

This dissertation examines works by Louise Bourgeois, Sophie Calle, Marguerite Duras, Roni Horn, Clarice Lispector, and Kiki Smith, to discuss the rethinking of reading, viewing, and dwelling that they incite. My selection of enigmatic pieces demonstrates how each one uniquely sets forth a fundamental claim: that the work of art consists in closing in on "l'insaisissable de la pensée," a phrase coined by Hélène Cixous in describing Roni Horn's reworking of a text by Clarice Lispector. I turn to discuss the reader's role upon encountering this ungraspable of thought, since all of the pieces in play here explicitly call for a reader's participation in the creative process constitutive of the work of art. I advance that they challenge the reader to an interpretation more concerned with a vibrancy that overflows signification than with retrieving meaning. The work of art creates spaces made up of oblique, non-interchangeable webs of signifiers, so as to construct, as process and site, what resists being understood in terms of an apprehensible object. Given the fleeting nature of water and flows, they materialize the work's uncharted event-in sculptural installations combining water and transparent glass or in photographs and film sequences featuring surfaces of streams coursing through cities. My project details, furthermore, the way in which desire fuels this aesthetic experience in the sense, as manifest in the French 'expérience, ' of an experiment: a constrained, perilous exposure to the unknown. Foregrounding figures of liquidity and flow, I show that desire's excessive quality is here intrinsic to questions of sexual difference. My dissertation discusses femininity as a stance regarding desire that offers unique perspectives on language and knowledge, developing its privileged position to undertake reading that confronts the limits of thought, which is integral to the artistic procedure as articulated by these pieces. Intertextuality informs my approach to each of the works, finding novel bridges among them and pivotal references they bear to the French literary canon and Western philosophy.
