A Language of the World

Versatility is an attribute that can be used to describe more than just Camille Henrot's individual works, which are at home in numerous media. It is also the golden thread that runs through the multifaceted richness of her entire oeuvre insofar as the abundance of material can always be experienced as an outer shell. Film and video, drawing, object art and installation all seem to wear their hearts on their sleeves in Henrot's work. They appear as the promise of an existentialist meaning. At the same time, however, this candor is also an eloquent silence. Things keep their secret. Instead of an answer, they put on their multiform procession of materiality, form and color, through which the here and now is presented in its supposed profanity as well as in its enigmatic splendor. It is this very individual sense of sensuality that the illustrated book – the artist's first major monograph – makes accessible.

CAMILLE HENROT (*1978) studied film and animation at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Her work has been acclaimed with numerous solo exhibitions worldwide (including the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Kunsthal Charlottenborg). She lives and works in Paris and New York.
