Camille Norment was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1970. Norment’s work spans drawing, installation, performance, and sound, using notions of “cultural psychoacoustics” and dissonance to investigate sociocultural phenomena through sound and music. In the past two years, highlights of her practice include performances with Ryuichi Sakamoto in New York (2018) and Japan (2017), commissioned performances with pianist Craig Taborn at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City (2016), as well as performances and exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Art (2017–18), Bergan International Festival in Norway (2016), and Pushkin Museum in Moscow (2016). Her work has also recently been featured in the Lyon Biennial in France (2017–18), Kochi-Muziris Biennial in India (2016), and Montréal Biennial (2016). At the 2015 Venice Biennale, Norment represented Norway with a three-part project that included a large-scale sound-and-sculptural installation, a publication series, and a sonic performance series. She lives and works in Oslo.
