New Museum presents focused presentation of works by Camille Henrot
“Camille Henrot: The Restless Earth” is on view on the Second Floor from May 7–June 29, 2014.
NEW YORK, NY.- The New Museum is presenting the first comprehensive exhibition of Camille Henrot’s work in the US. The exhibition brings together a selection of sculptures, drawings, and videos, all of which have made Henrot one of the most celebrated young artists working today. She has produced a number of dizzying video essays in which she follows intuitive research pursuits across disciplines and finds formal links between objects and images from disparate cultures and times. Henrot’s works combine anthropological research with a staggering range of cultural material reflective of the current digital age. Her exhibition at the New Museum provides a survey of her recent work.

The title, “The Restless Earth,” is borrowed from a poem by the Martinican writer Édouard Glissant, known for his novels, poems, and writings on colonialism and diversity. The exhibition features four of Henrot’s recent videos including Grosse Fatigue (2013), a standout of the recent Venice Biennale, garnering her the Silver Lion as most promising young artist. The work extends on earlier videos like Coupé/Décalé (2010) and Million Dollar Point (2011), which capture rituals and landscapes that move across history and distant geographies. “The Restless Earth” also includes several series of works on paper and a new installation of “Is it possible to be a revolutionary and like flowers?” (2012–14). In this series, Henrot translates books from her library into ikebana arrangements, connecting the languages of literature, anthropology, and philosophy with the equally complex language of flowers. Through translation as well as archival research and the creation of hybrid objects—apparent throughout the artist’s videos, sculptures, and works on paper—Henrot demonstrates how the classification of artifacts and the production of images structure the way we understand the world.

“Camille Henrot: The Restless Earth” is on view on the Second Floor from May 7–June 29, 2014. The exhibition is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Associate Director and Director of Exhibitions, and Gary Carrion-Murayari, Curator.

Camille Henrot was born in Paris in 1978. She lives and works in New York. Henrot’s work has been exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d’Art Moderne, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the 55th Venice Biennale. In 2010, she was nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp, and in 2013, she was the recipient of the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship in Washington, DC, where she produced the video Grosse Fatigue. Henrot currently has a solo exhibition at Chisenhale Gallery, London, which will travel to Bétonsalon – Centre for art and research, Paris, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, and the Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster.
