Now Is Just Right Now
An idea of hope and a sense of the romantic — encapsulated in the authorisation of ‘now is right now’, – a confident voice of a generation that can be witnessed in Taiga, the liveliest self-initiated, non-institutional open cultural project space in St. Petersburg. After the exhibition ended, the site-specific neon installation ‘Now is just right now’, like a lighthouse that beckons in new horizons, has remained in the courtyard of Taiga’s space contributing to the formation of a new self-identity of St. Petersburg’s art scene within a more global context.
'Now is Just Right Now' is a site specific neon installation exhibited at the solo show in St. Petersburg’s Taiga Space’ courtyard in 2012.
The installation remained after show had passed.
Kunsthaus Tacheles was an art centre and a squatted building in Berlin. Coincidentally on the same week when Egor’s work was installed in Taiga, it was shut down by cities authorities.
The tape with a looped back text ‘Now is Just Right Now is…’ is a comment to the comprehending of oneself's existence in the very moment of now and the nature of any existence being inseparable with the presence.
The tape was applied to the walls, ceiling and floor all over the exhibition space during the solo show. Certain amount of tape rolls was available free of charge to visitors as a takeaway piece.
