New Publication: Elephant Child by CAMILLE HENROT
French-born, New York-based Camille Henrot (born 1978) works in digital media, video installation and sculpture, exploring such themes as human bodies and information media.
In this hybrid artist's book and exhibition catalogue, the artist reconsiders source material and ideas found and developed during her Artist Research Fellowship at the Smithsonian, the making of her 2013 video 'Grosse Fatigue', and the subsequent installation 'The Pale Fox' (2014-15). A text by Henrot, in collaboration with curators Clara Meister and Michael Connor, forms the core of the publication, while an interview between the artist and social anthropologist Monique Jeudy-Ballini offers insight into Henrot's critical fascination with anthropology.
'Elephant Child' combines research materials, photographic fragments, preparatory notes and sketches alongside color photographs of sculptures, video stills and installation images.
