Camille Henrot, Spatial Film, 2007, 15:00 minutes
“The universe consists of an infinity of erratic micro-events. Each of them is more important than the large one.”—seen on the wall of Yona Friedman’s apartment

Filmed in 16mm, Spatial Film is a wandering through the apartment and cosmology of ideas of the architect and utopist Yona Friedman. As a conversation develops between Henrot and Friedman on the topics of film, technology, and the creative process, the point of view shifts to that of Friedman’s dog, Baltkis, the center of his emotional and conceptual world.

Camille Henrot (b. 1978, France) lives and works in New York City. Her practice moves seamlessly between film, painting, drawing, sculpture and installation. Henrot references self-help, online second-hand marketplaces, cultural anthropology, literature, psychoanalysis, and social media to reconsider the typologies of objects and established systems of knowledge. Henrot questions the consequences of the information age and how humans negotiate the articulation between the individual and global subjects, as well as intimate and broadly shared concerns. A 2013 fellowship at the Smithsonian resulted in the film Grosse Fatigue, for which she was awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale. She is the recipient of the 2014 Nam June Paik Award and the 2015 Edvard Munch Award. In 2017, Henrot was given carte blanche at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, where she presented the major exhibition “Days Are Dogs”.

Henrot has participated in the Lyon, Berlin and Sydney Biennials and exhibited at Schinkel Pavillon, Kunsthalle Wien and the New Museum. In late 2019 Henrot exhibited at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery and upcoming solo exhibitions include the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia (2020), Art Sonje, Seoul, South Korea (2020) and Middelheim Museum in Antwerp, Belgium (2021).

Camille Henrot (born 1978, France) is recognized as one of the most influential voices in contemporary arttoday. Over the past twenty years, she had developed a critically acclaimed practice, encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and film. Inspired by literature, second-hand marketplaces, poetry,cartoons, social media, self help and the banality of everyday life, Henrot’s work capture the complexity of living as both private individuals and global citizens in an increasingly connected and over-stimulated world. In 2013, Henrot received widespread critical acclaim for her film “Grosse Fatigue”,made during a fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution and awarded the Silver Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013.She elaborated ideas from Grosse Fatigue to conceive her acclaimed 2014 installation “The Pale Fox” at Chisenhale Gallery in London. The exhibit, which displayed the breadth of her diverse output, went on to travel to institutions including Kunsthal Charlottenburg, Copenhagen; Bétonsalon–Centre for art and research, Paris; Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, Germany; and Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Japan.In 2017, Henrot was given carte blanche at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, where she presented the major exhibition “Days Are Dogs."
