IN PERFORMANCE, "THERE IS NOTHING BEAUTIFUL ABOUT ME," SHALVA NIKVASHVILI CONFRONTS THE HARSH REALITIES OF SELF-PUNISHMENT AND REJECTION THAT WE ALL FACE AS HUMAN BEINGS. THROUGH A PHYSICAL METAMORPHOSIS, HE EXPLORES THE STRUGGLES OF IDENTITY AND THE PRESSURE TO CONFORM TO SOCIETAL BEAUTY STANDARDS.

THE PERFORMANCE IS A RAW AND EMOTIONAL JOURNEY, AS NIKVASHVILI INFLICTS PAIN ON HIMSELF AS A WAY OF EXPRESSING THE INNER TURMOIL AND SELF-HATRED THAT CAN CONSUME US ALL. THROUGH HIS MOVEMENTS AND PHYSICAL TRANSFORMATIONS, HE SHOWS US THE BEAUTY IN OUR IMPERFECTIONS AND THE POWER IN EMBRACING OUR TRUE SELVES.
