NARS is pleased to present Now is Always Someone Else: an experiment in curatorial and artistic collaboration, an exercise in decision making, a deconstructed instruction piece, a new way of working through the limitations imposed by distances, whether, metaphorical, physical or rooted in language. The presented work, newly configured by curator Vanessa Kowalski, employs the same material elements of a piece by Levan Mindiashvili previously arranged in an alternative format, originally commissioned for the 2019 BRIC Biennal with support from Erti Gallery, titled Here is Always Somewhere Else. Formally, the elements of the piece, presented in four different embodiments, are based on the word “here” in Georgian. Beside the installation hangs a single hyperlink, or a correlating tangent of the work, in which Kowalski’s handwritten rendition of the word ‘Now’ written from memory in Georgian lettering has been defined in liquid mirror.
