Previous works have taken place in the living and working areas of various cities of the United States and Europe since 1969. Works have been presented in major exhibitions, including "Documenta'/" and "Documenta 8" in Kassel, Germany, "Chambres d'amis" in Ghent, Belgium and "Promenades" in Geneva, Switzerland. An important survey of drawings was organized in 1987 by the Musée St. Pierre in Lyon, France, and permanent commissions have been completed recently for Le Domain de Kerguehennec, Brittany, France and for the University of Bochum, Germany. Nordman is based in Santa Monica, California.
The realization of this work sponsored by Dia Contet for the Arts has been made possible in part by grants from the Lannan Foundation, The Andy Wartrol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts, conferred in 1989, and by funds from the Dia Art Council.
