Voices: Camille Norment
Gallery 400 Lecture Room
400 South Peoria Street
Camille Norment s (born 1970) cross-media work is occupied with the way the body is inscribed with meaning through its use of and its negotiation with its surroundings. As such, it engages the viewer physically and psychologically in the work through his/her negotiations with architectural, sonic, and technically interactive environments and objects. While highly concerned with aesthetic experience, the work simultaneously spans the thresholds of the social and the political.
Norment has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe and has been included in exhibitions at the National Museum of Contemporary Art Oslo, Norway; Charlottenborg Fonden, Copenhagen, Denmark; Studio Museum, Harlem, New York; and at La Biennale di Venezia, 2003. Her work has been featured in Artforum, Art in America, and The New York Times. Norment holds Master’s degrees in Fine Arts and in Interactive Telecommunications, a technology arts discipline. She is currently Professor of Art and Technology at Malm University s School of Art, Culture, and Communication in Sweden.
