Artist's Talk by Camille Norment
Artist's talk by Oslo based artist Camille Norment, at Tromsø Art Academy (Kunstakademiet i Tromsø)
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.
