‘Rapture’ A project by Camille Norment
Part of 'Rapture', Norway’s contribution to the 56th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia in 2015, Rapture is a three-part publication exploring the broader contextual framework of artist Camille Norment's investigations. It reflects upon the relationship between sound and the visual arts, across time, as well as it complicates the hegemony of vision in contemporary theory and art practice.
In the first volume that was launched in tandem with the opening of the Biennale in May 2015, authors David Toop, María del Pilar Blanco and Rob Stone contribute essays reflecting on how sounds shapes our environment, our bodies and our minds. This first publication also includes a discussion between curators Katya García-Antón and Antonio Cataldo with artist Camille Norment, unfolding her artistic perspective on how sound has the power to act as a mediator of cultural experience.
