Camille Henrot merges anthropology and analog for ‘Grosse Fatigue’

The artist conceived this portfolio of found images and her own work for Document's Spring/Summer 2014 issue.

French artist Camille Henrot is a player of cards who does not cheat: driven by intense curiosity and with an anti-academic approach, she likes to jump from one discipline to another, through installations, videos, drawings, and photographs. Operating somewhere between anthropology and visual art, she matches images and objects like a magician. She was recently awarded the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale her video Grosse Fatigue. Henrot conceived this special portfolio for Document Journal, associating her own work and found images in her own unique, analogical way.
