“CAMILLE HENROT: DAYS ARE DOGS”

Palais de Tokyo
13, Avenue du Président Wilson
October 18 - January 7

Curated by Daria de Beauvais

Camille Henrot renders the dysfunctions and perversities of everyday life in an Umbrellas of Cherbourg palette that makes them all the more absurd. Her imaginative and often profound multimedia work—which includes such things as giant watercolors, cartoonish phones, and mesmerizing zoetropes—tends to be immersive and disorienting, so her takeover of the Palais de Tokyo’s entire exhibition space should be a thrill. Organized in seven thematic parts, one for each day of the week, her show promises frescoes, drawings, installations, sculptures, and video works, as well as the new film Saturday, Henrot’s first since the Fifty-Fifth Venice Biennale’s Silver Lion–winning Grosse Fatigue, 2013, a story of the universe told through book illustrations and browser windows.
