Camille Norment is an interdisciplinary multimedia artist, composer, and performer whose art and performance works are exhibited and performed worldwide.
Cultural psychoacoustics is both an aesthetic and conceptual framework for much of her practice – the investigation of socio-cultural phenomena through the sonic as a force over the body, mind, and society. Composing artworks through forms including recorded sound, sculpture and installation, drawing, and live performance, she applies this concept towards the creation of critical artworks that are preoccupied with the way in which context, form, space, and the body of the viewer create experiences that are both somatic and cognitive.
Camille Norment has completed several commissioned works to public spaces. In her current exhibition “Plexus” in Dia Chelsea, New York, Norment has united two large-scale sculptural and sonic installations in the postindustrial spaces of 541 and 545 West 22nd Street through a single sonic composition, with each space forming a dynamic and reflective acoustic environment.
Norment has also performed at institutions including the Munch Museum, Oslo (2021); Renaissance Society, University of Chicago (with Hamid Drake, 2019); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (with Craig Taborn, 2019). Norment’s work “Triplight” was featured at the entrance of the MoMA during the exhibition “Soundings: A Contemporary Score” (2013) and sound installation “Within the Toll” at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (2011).
Norment represented Norway in the 2015 Venice Biennale and has since participated in the Kochi-Muziris (2016), Montreal (2016), Lyon (2017), and Thailand (2018) biennials. She is prorector of research at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. She lives in Oslo.
