Artist talk: Saturday, 5 November, 4 p.m
Catherine Henriette’s works are autonomous universes in which the theatre of humans is played out in miniature.
With distance, the artist depicts a disproportionate world in which our reference points are lost, the sky and the earth, the infinitely large and small merge. This setting is inhabited by characters prey to the sublime of their present.
In her work, composed as a tale, the artist questions our relationship to space and to our collective individuality.
Fascinatingly precise, the artist’s photographs are invitations to contemplation and introspection. Newly represented by the gallery, Catherine Henriette’s work has been awarded the Prix of the Académie des Beaux-arts.
Catherine Henriette, born in 1960, lives in Paris and the Basque Country. She studied Chinese and lived and worked as a press photographer in Beijing from 1985 to 1991. Since then, she frequently returns to China as a freelance photographer.
