About the 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.
Camille Henrot (b.1978) lives and works in New York. Selected shows include Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (2019); Palais de Tokyo, France (2018); Kunsthalle Wien, Austria (2017); and 9th Berlin Biennale, Germany (2016); The Musée d’Art Moderne (2015-2016); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2014) among others. In 2013, she was the recipient of the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship in Washington, DC, where she produced the video Grosse Fatigue awarded by the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale. She was nominated for the 2014 Hugo Boss Prize. Camille Henrot is represented by kamel mennour, Paris; Johann König, Berlin; and Metro Pictures, New York.
