This event has ended.

This exhibition reprises Sophie Calle’s “Exquisite Pain,” a show originally held from 1999 to 2000 and with works that became part of the Hara Museum Collection. Sophie Calle is largely known for her highly narrative works using photographs and text. In “Exquisite Pain,” she uses these two mediums to trace the pain and recovery of a broken heart that she personally experienced. In Part One, letters to her most beloved person and photographs are used to relate the story of the worse day of her life. Part Two is the story of her gradual recovery, which she achieved by sharing her story of hurt with other people and then listening in turn to their stories about the worse experience of their lives.
