In March 2010 Nikhil Chopra performed over two days in a museum in Mumbai. The
drawing, costume and residues of that performance will be presented in Basel in June. The booth at Art Statements will engage in a dialogue with the inbuilt contradiction
evident in showing the documentation of performance, where the very absence of the performance tends towards a memorializing of the artist and his or her actions. As such the booth design will play with the aesthetic of museum display, especially with reference to that evident in the Colonial period.
Whilst Nikhil’s performances are time-bound, he is acutely interested in their residues in the forms of video, photography, costumes and drawings.
