    About The Work

    As is typical of Sophie Calle’s work, Chambre avec vue / Room with a view (a digital print produced in an edition of 300) is rooted in and inspired by the artist’s personal history and memories, in this case a performance she staged in the early 2000s. Connecting visual imagery with text, a romantic photograph of Calle in a nightgown atop the Eiffel Tower serves as an intimate depiction of the engaging and nostalgic short story that appears above: “Some nights you can’t put into words. I spent the night of October 5, 2002 in a room set up for me at the top of the Eiffel Tower. In bed. Between white sheets, listening to strangers who took turns at my bedside. Tell me a story so I won’t fall asleep. Maximum length: 5 minutes. Longer if thrilling. No story, no visit. If your story sends me to sleep, please leave quietly and ask the guard to wake me… Hundreds turned up. Some nights you can’t describe. I came back down in the early morning. A message was flashing on each pillar: Sophie Calle, end of sleepless night, 7:00 a.m. As if to confirm that I hadn’t dreamt it all. I asked for the moon and got it: I SLEPT AT THE TOPE OF THE EIFFEL TOWER. Since then, I keep an eye out for it, and if I glimpse it along some street, I say hello. Give it a fond look. Up there, 1,014 feet above the ground, it’s a bit like home.”
