THE ALL ROADS PROJECT EXHIBIT #1
The Debut of Chelsea, NYC’s Smallest Art Space.


Two Heads Are Better Than One, Don Porcella @ The All Roads Project by NOWhere Limited.

January 18, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art - Last night in the Chelsea art district of NYC, a unique one night exhibit by artist Don Porcella christened NOWhere Limited’s latest project: All Roads.

Porcella’s exhibit, titled Two Heads Are Better Than One featured four pipe cleaner sculptures, woven by hand with a self-created method the artist has developed and honed over time. These playful yet expressive figures evoke feelings of primordial existence, the earliest stage of “becoming.” The artist’s interest in nature and human evolution came from his youth spent exploring the Sierra Nevada wilderness in California and the American West. Now living and working in NYC, Porcella summons his earlier experiences in an animalistic call of the wild. By creating paintings, sculpture, drawings and installations from materials such as handmade wax and woven pipe cleaners, Porcella seeks to transform these low-brow materials and elevate them to a high art context, while simultaneously laughing at the human condition and presenting a unique world that is shamelessly awkward and unabashedly comical.

NOWhere Limited’s All Roads Project is a new experiment in alternative exhibition space.
Conceived with a “waste not want not” mentality, artists Elisha Sarti and Scott Lickstein, co-founders of NOWhere Limited, converted their SUV into Chelsea’s smallest art space.
