Nikhil Chopra and Jonathas De Andrade - Patterns of identity

Galleria Continua is happy to present a selection of works by Nikhil Chopra and Jonathas de Andrade, in an OVR that explores their research which follows patterns of identity rooted into history and space. Although coming from different backgrounds and artistic approaches, the two share a deep understanding of the cultural and social aspects of their respective lands of origin (India and Brazil), two different contexts connected by a vast array of historical affinities.
The works presented approach concepts of memory; in Chopra's case, its representation and its influx on the identity of the individual, and for De Andrade in a collective and societal sense, the two being indissoluble, with one forming and molding the other.
