  • Catalogue Essay

    Born in 1978, Camille Henrot lives and works in New York. Henrot's diverse practice combines film, drawing, and sculpture. Taking inspiration from subjects as varied as literature, mythology, cinema, anthropology, evolutionary biology, religion and the banality of everyday life, Henrot’s work acutely reconsiders the typologies of objects and established systems of knowledge. She has had solo exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, the New Museum, New York; Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin; New Orleans Museum of Art. Her work has been included in many group shows at MoMA, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and SculptureCenter, New York; as well as the 2015 Lyon Biennial and the 2016 Berlin Biennial. She was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale for her film Grosse Fatigue in 2013, the Nam Jun Paik Award in 2014 and the Edvard Munch Art Award in 2015. Camille Henrot is represented by kamel mennour, Paris/London since 2007.
