In 2011, Nomi was the recipient of a Jacques and Natasha Gelman Trust Fellowship. As a fellow, she spent 2011 - 2012 traveling through Germany, Belgium, England, Switzerland, Austria, Israel, and Brazil to study the contemporary impact of Germany's 1937 Degenerate Art show (Entartete Kunst). 

kNothing: A Brief History

Installation of 3 site-specific photographs

109 x 132 inches (each)

2015

A visual textbook, “kNothing, A Brief History” maps the dematerialization of art through the 20th century. The installation is composed of three photographs, ‘nothing,’ ‘kNothing,’ and ‘Something,’ each representing its own chapter. Moving among the photographs, the content slowly disappears just as does the subject it describes. From its full-scale photography to the personal commentaries that frame the images, the installation’s physicality invites viewers to consider the pictorial dematerialization around them. 

Installed here at Xpozure Gallery, Wilton CT, January 24 - March 7, 2015

Filled with facts, dates and commentary, ‘Something’ locates the birth of immaterial sculpture within the loss of Degenerate Art before and during World War II. Follow its chalk lines from card to card, and from sentence to sentence, and the viewer (reader) will have read a paragraph. Take a large step to the left, keep reading, and the viewer (reader) will have turned a page.
