The works in Camille Henrots exhibition “Mother Tongue” are inspired by the human developmental need for attachment and separation, the mouth as a site of both expression and consumption, and related connections to the preverbal. This exhibition is the second iteration of a presentation first conceived at Kestner Gesellschaft in 2021, with scenography by Charlap Hyman & Herrero. Camille Henrot was awarded the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2013 for her film Grosse Fatigue, as well as the Carte Blanche at Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2017, resulting in her monumental exhibition “Days are Dogs.”
