Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong will present Sophie Calle’s first solo exhibition in China, from November 26, 2014 to January 10, 2015.

For this exhibition, Calle will cover an entire wall with images from her “Cash Machine” project, which first originated in 1988 and was extended 15 years later with “Unfinished,” a 30-minute film in collaboration with Fabio Balducci. For Calle, these images provided a series of surreptitious glimpses into an everyday experience that resembles the act of entering a confession booth all alone to deposit or withdraw one’s money.

Concurrently, a solo show by Makoto Aida is presented at Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong. On Thursday 27 November, a talk between Sophie Calle and Makoto Aida moderated by Mami Kataoka, Chief curator at Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, will take place at the Miller Theater, Asia Society, Hong Kong from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

For more information about the exhibition and the talk, please contact
