In A Dlrow For Eht Taking Nicole Polonsky offers a site-specific installation which responds to the domestic window as a liminal arena in which the private and public realms meet.

About

 The artist is interested in this as a site where gestures towards activism may be performed, and political affiliations, belief systems and cherished hobbyhorses are voiced within the constraining parameters of the surrounding frame.

A Dlrow For Eht Taking presents a narrative that mines Nicole's past. This is the first time within her mature creative practice that the artist has produced an explicitly diaristic piece. Comprising lines of reverse, or mirror, writing inscribed in turn on the inside and outside of the window pane, the text reads correctly only when viewed line by line from opposite sides of the glass. By teasingly inviting and hampering the spectator’s ability to engage with the work, the artist seeks to convey her ambivalence towards self-revelation as source material and subject.
