Nikhil Chopra's transformation
Chopra underlined the importance of the transformational act in his work. The act itself could be manifested in different ways. Disguising the body may just be one of the solutions, andthis implies the spontaneous mutation of the personality as well. He seeks to elevate this mutation to the highest level possible. If he starts the transformation as a very masculine and ascetic figure, the logical opposition would be a feminine and seductive presentation of the same figure. But this process of change is a rather complex situation. One must keep questioning oneself in which way it should proceed, how far to go with it, to what extent, etc.
