Shirley Jordan dissects the performative and collaborative process in the work of Sophie Calle, in particular her installation Prenez soin de vous. Jordan discusses the melding between the particular autobiographical and the generic experience in Calle’s piece. Furthermore, Jordan connects the piece with recent post-feminist focus on the romance narrative and the representation of reading in western art.
