“When I was two years old, my father went into the woods, with the intention of never coming back.”
Peter Pflügler takes us on an intimate journey through the labyrinth of a family secret. The suicide attempt of his father was concealed for twenty years. And yet he has always somehow known.
Carefully investigating the traces of this silent, dark story, he created images that live on the brink of comfort and irritation, between love and pain.
Now is not the right time is about the impossibility of secrets, about what we share when we hide, and about intergenerational trauma. It is a work about pain inflicted out of love, the complexity of silence and the inexplicable sadness of a boy.
