Welcome to this conversation between Axel Wieder and Camille Norment on the occasion of the opening of the Festival Exhibition 2023.
Camille Norment is a visual artist, composer and performer. Based in Norway since 2004, she represented Norway in the 56th Venice Art Biennale in 2005 with the large-scale three-part project Rapture. For the Festival Exhibition, Camille Norment will transform Bergen Kunsthall’s four main galleries into one expansive sonic experience.
Axel Wieder is the director at Bergen Kunsthall
Plattform is Bergen Kunsthall’s series of lectures and debates with artists and prominent thinkers. This season we present talks and conversations that expand on themes related to Camille Norment’s artistic practice.
Plattform events are also live-streamed on our website, Facebook and Vimeo.
On The Festival Exhibition
The Festival Exhibition is Bergen Kunsthall’s flagship exhibition, established in 1953. Each Summer, we present a large scale exhibition with new work by a Norwegian artist, in connection with the Bergen International Festival (Festspillene i Bergen). The exhibition is considered the most important solo presentation for a Norwegian artist in their home country and creates a national debate about the state of the art, similarly to the Turner Prize in the UK.
