year ayer is a showcase of Niceli's work during 2020/2021 in the same space with Neil Constantine, as they explore the finite fragility of existing during a global pandemic and a cross country road trip before the 2020 u.s presidential elections. The last years felt like yesterday as the title suggests with the play on words between english and spanish. time became lost in translation.
