Born in Paris, France and based between Berlin and New York, Camille Henrot is one of the most compelling contemporary artists working today. Her work draws upon references from literature, psychoanalysis, social media, cultural anthropology, self-help, and the banality of everyday life to question what it means to be both a private individual and a global subject in an increasingly connected and over-stimulated world.
In 2013, Henrot’s film, Grosse Fatigue was awarded the prestigious Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale. This work which was the result of a fellowship at the Smithsonian Institute was further developed into the installation, The Pale Fox, 2014 which was first shown at Chisendale Gallery in London before traveling to institutions including Kunsthal Charlottenburg, Copenhagen; Bétonsalon – Centre for art and research, Paris; Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, Germany; and Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Japan. In 2017, Henrot was given carte blanche at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, where she presented the major exhibition Days Are Dogs.
