Sophie Calle's Phone Booth

Who’s Calling?

Who’s Calling?


"My name is Sophie Calle.
You are standing in my phone booth.
Only I know the number.
I will dial it from time to time,
but completely out of the blue,
in the hope that someone will answer."


These lines are engraved on a phone booth perched on the Garigliano bridge. Sophie Calle, the French artist and mind-blower found her inspiration when she heard about another phone booth planted in the middle of the desert that attracted endless crowds. So now she calls whenever she feels like it. The phone rings until a passerby answers it. They engage in a conversation about anything, which may last a few seconds or hours.

Will you be the next to pick up the phone?
