Gigi Scaria's work draws the viewer's attention towards the painful truths of migrancy and displacement. The issue of non-belonging and unsettlement reverberate between the walls on his canvas. "Gigi's particular position is to investigate how city structures, social constructs, and the view of location is translated in social prejudice and class attitude," says critic and curator Gayatri Sinha.
His solo exhibitions include 'Open windows closed boundaries' Dubai art fair, Gallery Chemould, Mumbai in 2010; 'Amusement Park' Gallery Chemould, Mumbai in 2009; 'Settlement' Galerie Christain Hosp, Berlin, Germany in 2009; 'Difficult to Imagine, Easy to construct' Art Asia Miami, USA in 2008; New Perspective from India, Seoul/Delhi, recent photographs and video, H Cube Gallery, Seoul, Korea in 2008.
Scaria has also participated in the FIAC Art fair, Paris, France in 2010; 'The way we are' Mon Art Gallery, Kolkata in 2010. He has also attended international and national residencies in U.K, Italy, South Korea and by Khoj in Delhi.
