Sophie Calle: Rachel Monique tells the story of Monique Szyndler, Sophie Calle's mother who died in 2007, through diary excerpts and photographs selected by the artist from family albums. Described as -haunting- and -a mystery novel that tirelessly searches for a missing person, - the Rachel Monique project honors a daughter's complicated relationship with her mother and the artist's deeply felt grief.
This volume, presenting Calle's installation of Rachel Monique at the Palais de Tokyo, was designed in close collaboration with the artist. The cover text is embroidered to create a precious object, and all of the texts relating to the installation are beautifully embossed. Sophie Calle: Rachel Monique is a highly personal and moving book, intimate and universal in its expressions of mourning and memory.
