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 works from the artist’s extensive body of work System of Attachment, as well as a selection from her new series Dos and Don’ts.
