Born in 1978 in Paris, New York-based Camille Henrot is one of the most dynamic artists working today. Her encyclopedic knowledge, limitless interests in various disciplines, and diverse artistic practices have created some of the most talked about films, paintings, and sculptures of the last few years. Drawing from her wide-ranging interests and research into subjects including literature, mythology, cinema, anthropology, evolutionary biology, religion and history, Henrot’s work acutely reconsiders the typologies of objects and established systems of knowledge. A 2013 fellowship at the Smithsonian resulted in her film “Grosse Fatigue,” a benchmark work for which she was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale. Developing on themes from the film, Henrot’s exhibition “The Pale Fox” was first shown at London’s Chisenhale Gallery in 2014 and travelled to Kunsthal Charlottenburg, Copenhagen, Bétonsalon, Paris, and the Westfällischer Kunstverein, Munster. A catalogue for the exhibition entitled Elephant Child was published in 2016.
Henrot has forthcoming exhibitions scheduled at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. She has had one-person exhibitions at the Fondazione Memmo, Rome; New Museum, New York; Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin; New Orleans Museum of Art; Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Paris; and Jeu de Paume, Paris. She has exhibited in group shows at Centre Pompidou, Paris; Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo; Stedelijk Museum, Netherlands; and SculptureCenter, New York. Camille Henrot participated in Prospect 3, New Orleans and the 2014 Taipei and Gwangju Biennials. She is the recipient of the 2014 Nam Jun Paik Award.
