SAKSHI GALLERY

8Poseurs, Gigi Scaria, Gregory Crewdson, Noriko Yamaguchi, Nandini Valli Muthiah and Vivek Vilasini

Within the context of contemporary photography, this exhibition focuses on artists that employ the culture of staging. An intrinsic element of which is posing, and the exhibition foregrounds the dual nature of Poseurs. Gregory Crewdson’s works are a vivid depiction of suburbia and its dark realities, Gigi Scaria alludes to the voyeurism intrinsic to urban existence in his series Conscience Keeper while Waswo X. Waswo brings the bustle of a city into his carefully designed studio environs. Japanese artist, Noriko Yamaguchi develops a futuristic image of humans in her series, Keitai Girl (mobile phone girl). Vivek Vilasini uses an urban backdrop for his bent, crouched and desperate, job-seeking youths. The artists are delving into various themes, including identity and alienation, new and old, sacred and profane, all connected by the thread of an urban gaze.
