Camille Henrot (born 1978, France) is recognized as one of the most influential voices in contemporary art today. Over the past twenty years, she had developed a critically acclaimed practice encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, and film. Inspired by literature, second-hand marketplaces, poetry, cartoons, social media, self-help, and the banality of everyday life, Henrot’s work captures the complexity of living as both private individuals and global citizens in an increasingly connected and over-stimulated world.
In 2013, Henrot received widespread critical acclaim for her film “Grosse Fatigue”, made during a fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution and awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. She elaborated ideas from Grosse Fatigue to conceive her acclaimed 2014 installation “The Pale Fox” at Chisenhale Gallery in London. In 2017, Henrot was given carte blanche at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, where she presented the major exhibition “Days Are Dogs." She is the recipient of the 2014 Nam June Paik Award and the 2015 Edvard Munch Award and has participated in the Lyon, Berlin, Sydney, and Liverpool Biennials, among others.
Henrot has had numerous solo exhibitions worldwide. Upcoming solo exhibitions include Lokremise St. Gallen (2023) and Fondazione ICA Milano (2023).
