Gigi Scaria


(b.1973, lives and works in New Delhi, India)

Gigi Scaria first studied in Kerala, then completed an MA at Jamia Millia Islamia in Delhi. Scaria’s work responds to growing urbanism, particularly in Indian cities. His architectural sculptures, videos, photographs and paintings express alienation and unease in relation to the expansion of the built environment. Scaria received early acclaim and his work has shown widely, most notably at Videospace Budapest and in the National Art Studio in Korea in 2008, in Shanghai in a collaborative Indo-Chinese exhibition in 2010, at the Singapore Biennial, the Prague Biennial and in the India Pavilion in Venice in 2011, in Australia and New Zealand in 2012, where he became a fellow at the University of Melbourne, at the Smart Museum in Chicago in 2013, and at the Kochi Muziris Biennale in 2014. He exhibited at Laumeier Sculpture Park and the Adam Aronson Fine Art Center in St. Louis in 2016, and at the Jameson Gallery at Duke University in 2017.
