Artist of the Collection

Camille Henrot

Born in 1978 at Paris, France

Camille Henrot’s multidimensional practice encompasses photography and video as well as sculpture and drawing. The artist invites us to renew our gaze on the objects that make up our immediate environment. Passionate about anthropology, literature, and human sciences, she is interested, through a transcultural approach, in the mythologies and beliefs that lie at the heart of the human experience.

Born in 1978 in Paris, Camille Henrot graduated in animation film at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 2002. Nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2010, she represented France and won the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. She also received the Nam June Paik Prize in 2014 and the Edvard Munch Art Award in 2015. Henrot has lived and worked in New York since 2013.
