Camille Henrot: Is Today Tomorrow Virtual Tour by NGV
The contemporary international feature in NGV’s deep-diving 2021 program is from French-born, New York-based artist Camille Henrot.
It’s a compelling survey of her career, and her first major solo exhibition in Australia (though she’s been part of past group shows).
As with many contemporary artists, Henrot works across multiple formats including sculpture, drawing, video and installation. And she was named the most promising young artist at the 55th Venice Biennale for Grosse Fatigue, 2013, a companion piece to the immersive room-scale installation The Pale Fox, 2014, which will be on show here.
With more than 400 photographs, sculptures, books and drawings – bought on Ebay, borrowed from museums or self-produced – the work encourages us to think about how we make sense of the world through the objects that surround us.
While the NGV stays closed during Melbourne’s lockdown, a 3D virtual tour of Camille Henrot: Is Today Tomorrow is available to view online for free.
