Presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) as part of Crossing the Line Festival 2017. Renowned French conceptual artist Sophie Calle invited people from Istanbul to see the ocean for the first time. As Calle describes it, “I took them to the shore of the Black Sea. They came to the water’s edge, separately, eyes lowered, closed, or masked. I was behind them. I asked them to look out to the sea and then to turn back towards me to show me these eyes that had just seen it for the first time.” Magnified on Times Square’s electronic billboards, five intimate video portraits silently reveal their emotional response to this evocative experience.
