Camille Henrot, Grosse Fatigue – a new exhibition at Gucci Museo

Gucci already has excellent relations with both modern art and cinematography. Yet this doesn’t mean that the prestigious Italian House has met its goal – but that it’s just the right time for a new Gucci Museo opening. This time, one that brings together a variety of different arts: it’s the exhibit dedicated to Grosse Fatigue, French artist Camille Henrot’s short movie.

The 13 minute film is in itself a melange of ideas, scientific and artistic manifestations, and also one of media: the concepts collage based on Henrot’s research at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington has a backdrop provided by the reading of an Akwetey Orraca-Tetteh and Jacob Bromberg poem, as well as the original soundtrack composed by Joakim.

Winner of the Silver Bear at the 2013 Venice Biennale, Camille Henrot is already a familiar presence in renowned spaces dedicated to contemporary art the world over: Tate Modern in London, the New Museum in New York, Palais de Tokyo and Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam or Macba Barcelona. And her artistic language – video, illustration, photography, sculpture, installations – speaks to the critics and the wider public alike.

So, if between October 3, 2014 and February 8, 2015 you happen to be in Florence, don’t miss a visit at the museo. Let’s take advantage of the window to contemporary art that Gucci has opened!
