Sophie Calle wint Hasselblad Award

De Franse kunstenares Sophie Calle is de winnares van de 2010 Hasselblad Award. De prijs is goed voor een bedrag van 100 duizend euro, een gouden medaille en een tentoonstelling.
Uit het Engelse persbericht met de bekendmaking:
‘For more than three decades, French artist Sophie Calle has been questioning and challenging the relationship between text and photography, private and public personae, truth and fiction, in a groundbreaking, utterly original way. Her conceptually oriented work depicts human vulnerability and examines the interrelationship between identity and intimacy as well as the construction of official history. It evokes narrative, affect and emotion in ways that at the same time touch the viewer deeply and makes her reflect on the possibilities as well as limits of photography. Her contribution to the understanding of the medium of photography has inspired younger generations of artists.’

Tot de eerdere winnaars behoren Nan Goldin, Lee Friedlander en Jeff Wall.
