A document of performance
After Nikhil Chopra left his tower in the Arsenale, where he had spent 48 hours performing, one could still have the sensation of his presence as well as the gradual evolution of performance. The drawings left behind in the tower will be used as documentation of his process. They are the memory of the performance, of course, but also a longtime souvenir of an era that has passed. A silent rhetoric was the core of Chopra’s performance, and the same silence will stay behind as its living testimony.
