Camille Henrot the most Google-able artist in France
According to a study carried out by the Observatoire du Web Social dans l’art contemporain, directed by Alexia Guggémos, “2016 saw a 460% increase of Internet visibility for Camille Henrot, the figurehead of the French art scene,” making her the artist with the most increased online visibility in France this year.
After winning the Silver Lion for best young artist at the 2013 Venice Biennale for her work Grosse fatigue — which was also shown at the Gucci Foundation in Florence in 2014 — the 38-year-old artist has continued to innovate her practice and reinvent entrenched art world tropes. In 2017, Henrot will feature in the Berlin Biennial and will have a solo show at the Palais de Tokyo in October, which is already making waves on the Internet.
