Nikhil Chopra’s (b.1974) artistic practice ranges between live art, theatre, painting, photography, sculpture and installations.
His performances, in large part improvised, dwell on issues such as identity, the role of autobiography, the pose and self-portraiture, reflects on the process of transformation and the part played by the duration of performance. Taking autobiographical elements as his starting point, Chopra combines everyday life and collective history; daily acts such as eating, resting, washing and dressing, but also drawing and making clothes, acquire the value of ritual, be- coming an essential part of the show. Chopra has been performing actively in the international art and theater scene since 2008.
