Between 1978 and 1981, Sophie Calle went on a clandestine exploration of the then abandoned Htel du Palais d'Orsay. She selected room 501 as her home and without any pre-established method, set about photographing the abandoned hotel over 5 years. As she explored, she picked up items she found: room numbers, customer reception cards, old telephones, diaries, messages addressed to a certain Oddo and more besides. What happened to room 501? More than 40 years later it has disappeared and an elevator has taken its place. At the invitation of Donatien Grau, the Muse dOrsay curator, Sophie Calle returned, equipped with a flashlight, to explore the site again during the lockdown period. She hunted down the ghosts of the Palais d'Orsay, now connected to the present by the visitors that had also deserted the museum. The work reconstructs the artists archive of photography, letters, invoices and other daily items which bring a forgotten past back to life. To provide commentary on her discoveries, Sophie Calle called upon the archaeologist Jean-Paul Demoule, who writes a series of texts combining fact and fiction. All this evidence has been assembled together to create an objet dart which resembles an investigation notebook.

Övrig information

Since the early 1970, Sophie Calle has created a number of exhibitions around the world. She has been described as a conceptual artist, photographer, video-artist and even detective and has developed her own distinct modus operandi, combining text and photography to tell of something deeply personal. She is considered one of the greatest artists of the 21st century. The archaeologist and prehistorian, Jean-Paul Demoule is an emeritus professor in European protohistory at Paris I University (Panthon-Sorbonne) and an honorary member of the Institut Universitaire de France. He specializes in this history of archaeology, its ideological constructions and its social role.
