Product Information


Celebrated for her fusion of conceptual art and constraints, Sophie Calle is an internationally renowned artist. In 1981, she took a job as a chambermaid for the Hotel C in Venice, Italy. Hiding her camera and tape recorder in a mop bucket, she not only cleans the hotel rooms, but gathers evidence of the hotel guests' lives. The Hotel is a forensic conceptualist's inventory of the ordinary and extraordinary lives of this particular hotel.

Photographs of floral bedspreads, unkempt closets, open suitcases, pairs of shoes, jewelry and love letters are included throughout the book, each item belonging to the unknown hotel guests.

About the Artist

Maison Plage is an ode to the meeting of unlikely things—images, artefacts, artworks, ideas—and to the transportive possibilities revealed when they’re collaged. (Its name translates, quite literally, to house and beach, suggesting both French grandeur and the American coast.) Since its founding in 2019 by Kelly Croteau, it’s become a destination for those seeking rare, out of print, and new books, especially those relating to fashion, art, design and photography—from the avant-garde to the natural world. Each book is hand-selected by Croteau, who travels widely to source them.
