Camille Henrot

Exhibition and Shows

22 May 2020 to 31 Oct 2020

Camille Henrot is one of the most compelling contemporary artists working today. Born in Paris in 1978, the New York-based artist works across diverse media including sculpture, drawing, video and installation. Addressing major existential questions regarding the nature of our world, its history and our place within it, Henrot draws upon wide-ranging disciplines including anthropology, mythology, cinema, literature, museology, religion and evolutionary biology.

The exhibition features key works from the past decade including a group of new works on paper never before exhibited. Also featured is the first Australian presentation of the immersive room-scale installation The Pale Fox, 2014, a companion piece to the widely exhibited Grosse Fatigue, 2013, for which Henrot was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale for most promising young artist. The Pale Fox attempts to explain the origins of the universe, drawing from research she undertook during a fellowship at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC in 2013.

Henrot has participated in group exhibitions in Australia, most recently the NGV Triennial in 2017. This is Camille Henrot’s first major survey exhibition in Australia.
