Sophie Calle has a forensic relationship to reality. She documents the past, but it is less the events in themselves that interest her than proof that they really happened. Surveillance, exhibitionist display, and absence have long been essential themes of her detective work, the latter concerning directly the works done in conjunction of the infamous theft at the Isabella Gardner Museum.
