New Delhi, Nov 1 : A collection of sculptural works whose title is inspired by philosopher Nietzsches seminal "Ecce Homo: How to Become What You Are" work, is on display at the Vadehra Art Gallery here.
Displaying a body of new works including paintings, sculpture and projection, Gigi Scaria's solo exhibition is titled "Ecce Home".
Scaria's works "embody the moral doubts and anxieties regarding the future of the human body and humanity at large," art historian Premjish Achari writes in an essay titled "Man, in the End Times".
"Scaria's works betray the nihilism of Nietzsche. Like Nietzsche, Scaria too charts out an iconoclastic path, he dismantles the existing value systems to offer us a bleak vision of the present and the future," Achari writes.
The Delhi-based artist has previously exhibited in Dubai, London, Mumbai, New York and Zurich, as also in Trinidad,. More recently, an exhibition of his selected works, "Iconic Interruptions", on Mahatma Gandhi was held at North Carolina's Duke University in September 2017, the gallery said.
"Ecce Home" is open for viewing till November 24.
