Camille Henrot (born 1978) will be celebrated at the National Gallery of Victoria in an Australia-first survey of the award-winning contemporary artist, who was born in France and is based in New York, and internationally renowned for multidisciplinary work that takes a playful and inventive approach to addressing major existential questions.  

The exhibition features key works from the past decade including a group of new works on paper never before exhibited. Also featured is the first Australian presentation of the immersive room-scale installation The Pale Fox, 2014, a companion piece to the widely exhibited Grosse Fatigue, 2013, for which Henrot was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale for most promising young artist. The Pale Fox attempts to explain the origins of the universe, drawing from research she undertook during a fellowship at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC in 2013.

Henrot has participated in group exhibitions in Australia, most recently the NGV Triennial in 2017. This is Camille Henrot’s first major survey exhibition in Australia.
