At the heart of Nikhil Chopra‘s durational performances is the contemplative act of drawing. During his residency at The Met, Chopra will interrogate how identities are formed and understood through a series of dramatic character transformations and the creation of a monumental drawing. The outcome will be Lands, Waters, and Skies – a live performance created for The Met’s galleries. For eight consecutive days, Chopra will inhabit various personae and interact with The Met collection. Akin to a nomadic traveler, Chopra will move through the museum, following an itinerary of his own making that will query the museum’s own organizational principles and logic.
