Camille Henrot

Artist

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. A 2013 artistic fellowship at the Smithsonian resulted in her film Grosse Fatigue, for which she was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale. Developing themes from the film, The Pale Fox installation was first shown at London’s Chisenhale Gallery in 2014 and traveled to Kunsthal Charlottenburg, Copenhagen; Bétonsalon, Paris; and the Westfällischer Kunstverein, Munster. A catalogue for the exhibition was released in January 2016. Henrot has forthcoming solo exhibitions scheduled at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris; and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and Fondazione Memmo, Rome. She has had solo exhibitions at the New Museum, New York; Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin; New Orleans Museum of Art; Musée du Jeu de Paume, Paris. Her work has been included in 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 is the recipient of the 2014 Nam June Paik Award and the Edvard Munch Art Award 2015.
