Yog Raj Chitrakar: Memory Drawing X

Anybody who saw the exhibition Marina Abramovic Presents… last year will remember the beautiful and moving performance by the brilliant Indian artist Nikhil Chopra. Earlier this year, Nikhil performed a walk from the north of Mumbai to the south. The installation version of this work will be shown in the UK for the first time at the Whitworth. Made up of a vast charcoal drawing on canvas, a series of twenty eight photographs that document his journey, and the clothes he wore whilst walking, this work will be placed alongside John Robert Cozens seven sketchbooks of drawings made on his journey from England to Italy in 1782.
