Camille Henrot: Grosse Fatigue
 

7pm, Friday 15 August, Academy Cinema, Auckland: CIRCUIT presents a one-night only screening of works by New York-based French artist Camille Henrot entitled Grosse Fatigue. This programme of recent film and video works explores the connection of the artists’ studio to the museum, the evolution of culture and systems of knowledge, drawing on anthropology and social archaeology. A highlight of the screening is Grosse Fatigue (2013), an ambitious video which attempts to tell the story of the universe’s creation using a computer desktop and the collection of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. Grosse Fatigue was awarded the Silver Lion at 55th Venice Biennale. Watch an interview and excerpts here

Camille Henrot: Gross Fatigue is curated and presented by George Clark (Tate Modern). Admission is $10 (door sales only) or free with registration for Locating the Practice (register in advance to director@circuit.org.nz).
