NPOV, Plagiarism, etc.[edit]

I have removed the following text chunk from the main article:

Sophie Calle is a disturbing character. Artist known as "unclassable", its autobiographical works cause polemic. It is a photographer but almost never its photographs itself takes, it makes its life a work of art by using the others, and spaces it few days becomes a character of novel. Its most known series of photographs is that of the "Blind men". By always combining the text and the image, it photographs blind men of birth and their request to express their vision of the beauty. With the limit of the indiscretion, Sophie Calle often takes risks to work out her settings in scene. She follows people in the street to photograph them, she posed as a maid in a Venetian hotel to inspect and photograph the personal effects of customers. Works of Sophie Calle are diverse. The context in which the texts and photographs fit makes it possible to often qualify them "artistic performance". The public is often shocked by Calle's works. Along with primary shock and disapproval, morals are often mandated to be discarded in appreciating the innovating works of Sophie Calle.

Judging from its terrible grammar, syntax and diction (and use of "its" where "her" should be, for example), this seems to be a machine translation from an unreferenced French source. Furthermore, statements such as the paragraph's initial sentence are ubsubstatiated and biased, and thus not encyclopaedic. NeoThe1 (talk) 16:03, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

New external link[edit]

I have added a link to the artist talking about the creation of her works for Venice Biennale 2007. She talks about the ideas behind both 'Take care of yourself' and 'Impossible to catch death'. T.Broch (talk) 15:36, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
