About the Piece

The wide smile of the performer is made ludicrous by his nudity. His walk backwards on his hands and feet likewise looks slapstick, a parody of the seriousness of modern life. Chowdhury characters such as these are fascinating as they are rarely placed in a distinct surrounding. It is as if they could be everywhere and anywhere in our world. Works such as this seemingly ridiculing our human drama have a dark core inspired by the traumatic experiences of partition, dislocation and isolation.
