Camille Henrot

Camille Henrot (b. 1978, Paris, France) lives and works in New York, USA. Henrot’s 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. As part of a fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution, USA, Henrot created the film Grosse Fatigue, for which she was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale, Italy (2013). In 2014, Henrot was awarded the Nam June Paik Award. Recent and upcoming exhibitions include the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia (2020); Palais de Tokyo, France (2017); Kunsthalle Wien, Austria (2017); and 9th Berlin Biennale, Germany (2016).
