Camille Henrot
French, b. 1978
Follow

In her film and video animations, sculpture, drawing, and photography, Camille Henrot—a winner of the prestigious Silver Lion Award at the Venice Biennale—examines systems of knowledge and the way in which disparate cultures and locations have been represented throughout art history. For her series “Endangered Species”, Henrot produced objects inspired by African art using components of car engines, pointing to the migration of symbols between art forms and blurring any linear sense of cultural identity. More recently, Henrot created her work, Est-il possible d’être révolutionnaire et d’aimer les fleurs? (Is it possible to be a revolutionary and love flowers?) (2012), a series of objects and arrangements inspired by the Japanese art of flower arrangement, or Ikebana. “What spoke to me most about Ikebana,” she has said, “was its vocation to create a ‘privileged space’ that offers a remedy to the discontinuity produced by life’s upheavals.”
