Camille Henrot – Grosse Fatigue
The title of the exhibition was taken from an eponymous work, Grosse Fatigue. Screened throughout the room, this 13-minute film has the crazy ambition of bringing together several stories around the creation and evolution of the world. Mythology, biology, anthropology and art are summoned there, in a cumulative and holistic approach, featuring a music by Joakim and a long poem by Jacob Bromberg told by the slammer Akwetey Orraca-Tetteh. The sculpture Tevau, made up of a fire hose forming two rolls, responded to this sumptuous work. It also showed Camille Henrot's taste for hybridizations: here, that of a modern object and an ancient ritual object from the Solomon Islands.
Immersive and highly evocative, the "Camille Henrot - Grosse Fatigue" event is part of the Gucci Museo's series of daring exhibitions.
