Prorector of Research Camille Norment, “Welcome” Talk.
Artistic research is inherently an embodiment of ideas, materials, subjectivities, actions, and questions. By looking directly at the forms and functions of embodiment through the arts, we can enhance our ability to recognize and to utilize reflection as a process during the creative processes.
Artistic research is an integrated part of the activities at Oslo National Academy of the Arts and plays a central role in forging a unified artistic community. Our Artistic Research Week aims to contribute to a wider understanding of the nature of artistic research, to showcase what is being developed here at the Academy of the Arts, and how this research relates to greater disciplinary and socio-cultural contexts. It also aims to increase the discursive level on artistic research, through sharing experiences, insights and knowledge that is generated through practice-based research with faculties, students and a wider audience.
