Printed collateral, such as silkscreened poster & invitation, i designed for my personal first big solo-exhibition. The main theme as well as the name of the exhibition was based on a phrase "Now Is Just Right Now". Exhibition took place at St. Peterburg's loft & culture hub "Taiga"
"Now is Just Right Now is Just Right Now is..." tape was produced in order to conceptually fill the exhibition space with the endless phrase, that ascertains the fact of the endless flow of time. So that reading of it becomes a mantra, an attempt to experience the present.
"How long is now" - the question unanswered in the form of graffiti on the wall of the legendary Berlin squat Tacheles, which became a symbol of independent Berlin of the '90s. But how to get an answer to this question and go further to the understanding of ongoing existence? The main line of my exhibition was an artistic answer to that is to stop focusing on the moment of "now" and approve its permanent presence. Hope and romantic urge ,contained in the actual approval of the "now is right now", - is a confident voice of a generation that can be witnessed in the "Taiga",the liveliest self-initiated, non-institutional open cultural project space of St. Petersburg.  After the exhibition ended, the site-specific neon installation "Now is just right now", like a lighthouse that indicates new horizons, remained in the backyard of "Taiga" space contributing to the formation of a new self-identity of St. Petersburg art scene in a global context.
