French conceptual artist Sophie Calle debuted her latest break-up obsession project at the Vienna Biennial last month.

In Prenez Soin de Vous (Take Care of Yourself), Calle takes an email by which her former lover dumped her (signing off, "Take care of yourself"), and has it analyzed by 107 women according to their respective professional expertise, including a proofreader, a judge, an expert in women's rights at the UN, a French intelligence officer, translators, linguists, a chess pro, a family mediator, a clown, a puppet, and a psychoanalyst. It's translated from French into English, barcode, a crossword puzzle, oragami, and the music of Feist.

If you believe in art therapy, you will believe in this. Regardless, it's a 107-strong chorus of brilliant women.

Thanks to Miss Leslie Feist herself
