Camille Henrot


Biography

Camille Henrot (b. 1978, France) lives and works in New York City. Her multidisciplinary practice moves seamlessly between film, drawing, sculpture and installation. Henrot references literature, mythology, cinema, and anthropology to reconsider the typologies of objects and established systems of knowledge. A 2013 fellowship at the Smithsonian resulted in the film Grosse Fatigue, for which she was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale. She is the recipient of the 2014 Nam June Paik Award and the 2015 Edvard Munch Award. In 2017, Henrot was given carte blanche at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, where she presented the major exhibition “Days Are Dogs”.


Henrot has forthcoming solo exhibitions scheduled at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (2019) and the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia (2020).


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; the Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Fondazione Memmo, Rome.
