Without Child (Breast) Because I found online a definition of me reduced to just seven words: 'Sophie Calle, artist without child by choice » By pure mischief, because one happens to be around The series Parce que (Because) concealed by curtains embroidered with text for viewers to read before lifting the curtain to discover the image behind it. The text that begins with the word «Parce que» explains the reason why this image exists, why the artist chose this specific place or time. The justification for the photograph can thus be understood before the image, in a unique tautological rapport that questions the text-image relationship. FRANCAIS : La serie Parce que masquees par des rideaux brodes d'un texte que le visiteur; peut lire avant de les soulever pour decouvrir l'image. Le texte qui debute; par « Parce que » explique la raison pour laquelle cette image existe,; pourquoi l'artiste a choisi ce moment ou ce lieu. La justification de la photographie est ainsi lisible avant l'image, dans un rapport tautologique inedit qui questionne la relation texte - image.
