About

The body is a site where various forms of knowledge converge. This knowledge is a manifestation of the information that the body has gathered, conscious and unconsciously, in a reckoning with its sensory experiences, creating our sensory knowledge spaces.

Multi-media artist Camille Norment’s work utilizes the notion of cultural psychoacoustics as both an aesthetic and conceptual framework. She defines this term as the investigation of socio-cultural phenomena through sound and music - particularly instances of sonic and social dissonance, and works through sound as a force over the body, mind, and society. Composing through forms including recorded sound, installation, drawing, and live performance, she applies this concept towards the creation of critical artworks that are preoccupied with the way in which form, space, and the body of the viewer create experiences that are both somatic and cognitive. While highly concerned with aesthetic experience, the work simultaneously spans the thresholds of the social and the political, often utilizing specific cultural symbols from various social realms, as ‘quiet’, but potent elements in the work. As such, a singular element specifically charged in one context is expanded to reveal a macrocosm of inter-contextual narratives. In her performance work, Camille performs as a solo artist, with other musicians in selected projects, and with her ensemble, the Camille Norment Trio. The Camille Norment Trio, is comprised of the Norwegian hardingfele, electric guitar, glass armonica, feedback and electronics. Each of these instruments was once banned in fear of the psychological, social, or sexual power their sound was thought to have over the body, and the challenge they represented to social control. Norment currently exhibits two large-scale commissioned installation works for the Dia Art Foundation, Chelsea, in New York which is accompanied by a public “constellation” series. She has also recently completed a commissioned permanent installation for the HL-Senteret in Oslo. Other commissions and upcoming work include the Armory, New York, Munch Museum in Oslo, Stavanger Museum in, and the Festspillene festival in Bergen. Camille Norment represented Norway in the 56th Venice Biennial of Art (2015), with a three-part project that included a large-scale sound and sculptural installation, a publication series, and a sonic performance series. Performance highlights include a duo with Hamid Drake in Chicago (2019), Ryuichi Sakamoto in Japan (2017) and New York (2018), commissioned performance with pianist Craig Taborn at the Armory in New York (2016, 2022), both performances and exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Art (SFMOMA) (2017-8), the Pushkin Museum in Moscow (2016), and the Festspillene Festival in Bergen, Norway (2016). and Her work has also recently been shown in solo exhibitions at Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts (2019), University of Chicago; Oslo Kunstforening (2017), Norway; and Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin (2017). Several permanent public installations and sculptures of her work are installed in Norway and Italy. A recent span of her extensive international exhibition, performance, and permanent public artwork credits also includes: Boccata d’arte (2021); Rennaisance Society (2019); the Lyon Biennial (2017-8); Montréal Biennial (2016); and the Kochi-Muziris Biennial in India (2016); Jazzhouse, Copenhagen (2016); Lisboa Soa (2016); an outdoor surround sound broadcast feature at Art Basel Miami (2015); Ultima Contemporary Music Festival (2015); exhibition and performance in the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2013); a commissioned artwork and performance for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo (2012); Henie Onstad Art Center (2011 permanent sound installation). Norment’s work has been written about in periodicals such as Frieze, Art Forum, Art in America, The New York Times, Kunst Kritikk, Aftenposten, The Wire Magazine, Cleveland Classical and numerous other international texts. Camille Norment has been featured in several recordings and her work has been broadcast in radio features including NPR in the U.S., Norway's NRK radio, and the UK's BBC. Camille Norment was born and educated in the U.S.,and began her professional career with 12 years in New York before relocating to Oslo, Norway where she now lives and works.
