French, New York-based artist Camille Henrot creates animated videos, films, sculptures, drawings, and photographs, all of which defy traditional art historical categories. Indeed, Henrot is committed to the idea of “otherness,” so she often combines disparate forms to create wholly new objects. She is also fascinated by history as well as the way in which events of the past continue to resonate today—as a result, many of her works draw on specific historical time periods to offer reinvented means of understanding our contemporary moment.

Henrot has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and the Hara Museum in Tokyo. Her work has also been included in group exhibitions at notable institutions including the SculptureCenter in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. She was the 2103 recipient of the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship in Washington, D.C., during which time she produced the video Grosse Fatigue, for which she won the Silver Lion for the most promising young artist at the 55th Venice Biennale.
