Camille Henrot
Working/Resting, 2014

Silkscreen onto Colorplan 270gsm paper
2 prints, 48 x 28 cm
Edition of 60 + 5AP

SOLD OUT

Chisenhale Gallery is pleased to present an ambitious new commission and the first UK solo exhibition by French, New York-based artist, Camille Henrot (b. 1978). Entitled The Pale Fox, this new installation develops from Grosse Fatigue (2013) – the film Henrot presented at the 55th Venice Biennale, 2013, for which she was awarded the Silver Lion for most promising young artist. Demonstrating the breadth of Henrot’s output, this exhibition comprises an architectural display system, found objects, drawing, bronze and ceramic sculpture and digital images.

To accompany the exhibition Camille Henrot has produced a new limited edition silkscreen print titled Working/Resting, 2014. Presented as a dyptic, the two gestural ink drawings depict a figure at work hunched over a laptop screen, juxtaposed with a figure resting also in front of a laptop. According to Camille Henrot the edition, as the exhibition, is referencing the binary logic that the individual has to choose between one activity or the other. Working and resting, despite being perceived different, secretly are not really separated. In present society both acts are connected with the digital technologies and are productivity oriented.

Camille Henrot (born 1978) lives and works in New York. Recent solo exhibitions include the New Orleans Museum of Art (2013); Slought Foundation, Philadelphia (2013); kamel mennour, Paris (2012), Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Paris (2010). Group exhibitions include Companionable Silences, Nouvelle Vague, Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2013); A Disagreeable Object, SculptureCenter, New York (2012); Elles, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2010). Henrot was nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2010 and received the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale, 2013. She is shortlisted for the Hugo Boss Prize 2014.
