The French conceptual artist/provocateur Sophie Calle presents 107 outside interpretations of a 'break-up' email she received from her lover the day he ended their affair. All of the interpreters were women; each was asked to analyze the document according to her profession - so that a writer comments on its style, a lawyer defends the ex-lover, a proofreader provides a literal edit of the text, etc. Calle also asks a variety of performers, including Nathalie Dessay & Laurie Anderson, among others, to act the letter out, who Calle then photographs, along with the other contributors, so that each printed interpretation is juxtaposed to a riveting image of its author. With some digital documentation.
