Art In America

Camille Henrot

at New Museum,
235 Bowery

French artist Camille Henrot provides the standout in the New Museum's slew of new exhibitions, showing a fantastic mix of video, engravings, sculptures and ikebana-style flower arrangements. The latter are based on books from Henrot's library, translating texts into configurations of plants and objects that still manage to carry something of their source material. Also on view is Grosse Fatigue (2013), a video splicing together creation myths and screenshots of items from the collection of the Smithsonian Institution, all within the visual framework of a computer desktop. The work won her the Silver Lion at last year's Venice Biennale.
