ECCE Homo – Behold the man or how one become what one is
Taking its title and inspiration from German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s seminal text Ecce Homo: How to Become What You Are, Gigi Scaria’s latest show includes a body of brand new works including paintings, sculptures and projections. Using anthropomorphic sculptures, video panels and drawings, the artist illustrates the moral doubts and anxieties regarding the human body and the future of our humanity as a whole.
ECCE Homo is on display at Vadehra Art Gallery (D-53, Defence Colony), New Delhi until November 24.
Michelle Poonawalla, in a tribute to her artist grandfather Jehangir Vazifdar, presents an exhibition that includes a series of animal portraits. A series of 25 new works that explore the fragility and power of nature, the creations are superimposed with a mapped digital projection, that makes it seem as though the animals are running ‘off’ the canvas, and into ‘our’ real world. Through this showcase, Poonawalla aims to highlight the beauty and variance of life, from the powerful bull to the fragility of a delicate butterfly.
Born Free is on display at Jehangir Art Gallery (161B, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Kala Ghoda), Mumbai until November 12.
