Camille Henrot Mouth to Mouth

The first Edvard Munch Art Award exhibition at MUNCH features the acclaimed French artist Camille Henrot. In this large-scale solo show, Henrot explores the ways in which people relate to their surroundings and each other. Consisting of painting, drawing and bronze sculpture, the exhibition centres around the push and pull of intimacy – between lovers, adults and children, humans and animals, living and non-living things.

Henrot’s powerfully affecting work – often filled with wry humour and cunning wordplay –incorporates a wide range of references from literature, psychoanalysis, social media, cultural anthropology and self-help books. The exhibition at MUNCH includes recent works from the artist’s    extensive body of work System of Attachment, as well as a selection of her previously unseen Life Drawings, in which two dancers’ bodies caress, contort and collide.

Camille Henrot (b. 1978 Paris, France) lives and works in Berlin and New York. Her practice incorporates a range of media including film, painting, drawing, sculpture and installation. Her 2022 solo exhibitions include the Middelheim Museum, Belgium and Salzburger Kunstverein, Austria. Henrot received the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale (2013), the Nam June Paik Award (2014) and the Edvard Munch Art Award (2015).
