Consideration on The Blind by Sophie Calle: Concerning “distance” and “beauty”

松田, 愛

内容記述
 This paper aims to define the significance of The Blind (1986), a work by the French contemporary artist, Sophie Calle (1953–). Calle creates the original world of her work by interweaving the real and fictional, mainly by using photographs and texts that often originate from her own and others’ lives. In The Blind, she asked 23 blind people about their image of beauty. The resulting work comprises multipart flamed objects-their portrait photographs, texts of their answers to her question and from one to three photographs of various images visualized from their words. Those images are the sea, picture, their room, their families and their important memories, etc. But why did she ask blind people about their images of beauty? What does beauty indicate for Calle? While following her previous method of juxtaposing photographs and text, Calle also directly adopted others’ words and used photographs that others took as well as existing images. Therefore, the “distance” between words and images, Calle and the blind people, and the self and others emerge from The Blind. However, when beholders experience this work as an installation with space, they also find the possibility of dialogue with others in the gradual movement of distance and intimacy. The “beauty” disclosed in this work is that which is associated with our pleasure and happiness; for example, freedom, harmony, their relationships with important people and those memories. The Blind is an outstanding work, born from where Calle’s firm faith in her own and others’ lives has come to fruition with her intellectual and sophisticated attitude toward execution.
