One of the most compelling contemporary artists working today, Camille Henrot’s practice encompasses a range of diverse media including sculpture, drawing, video and installation.
Reflecting on her extensive career to date and sharing insights into a selection of works currently on display in Camille Henrot: Is Today Tomorrow, Henrot speaks in conversation with NGV curator Pip Wallis.
Camille Henrot was born in Paris in 1978 and is now based in New York. Henrot references self-help, online second-hand marketplaces, cultural anthropology, literature, psychoanalysis, and social media to question what it means to be at once a private individual and a global subject. In 2017, Henrot held a major career survey exhibition Days are Dogs at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, as part of the Carte Blanche series. She has held solo exhibitions at Chisenhale Gallery, London; Fondazione Memmo, Rome; Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin; New Orleans Museum of Art; Musée du Jeu de Paume, Paris; the New Museum, New York, Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Japan, as well as Art Sonje Center, Seoul. Henrot has participated in group exhibitions in Australia, most recently the NGV Triennial in 2017.
