Peter Pflügler devises an intimate maze into the heart of his family secret. Concealed for 20 years, his father’s suicide attempt was an occurrence he somehow always knew about. Investigating traces of this silenced trauma, he created images that inhabit the brink of comfort and irritation, of love and pain. While rummaging through this unsettling landscape, we are invited to look closer and discover texts and images hidden between the pages. Now Is not the Right Time grapples with the impossibility of secrets, exposing what we share when we hide. It is about a specific kind of pain, one created out of love, the complexity of silence, and the unexplainable sadness of a boy.
