This part-human, part-animal and part-machine creation looks as though it could be performing Pilates, and Contrology is, indeed, an early term for this fitness regimen. This work is one in a series by Camille Henrot that humorously explores Monday and feelings that the first day of the week inspires, from renewed faith in the possibility for change to despondency over the tedium of weekly routine. How humans impose order onto their experience has been the focus of much of Henrot’s creative output in recent years.
