Steps of predicaments, 2011 | GIGI SCARIA

Reported by Racheal Ang

Singapore Biennale 2011, National Museum of Singapore

Steps of predicaments is a reflection of social hierarchies and aspirations. Gigi Scaria’s work unearths the rapid development in the cities of India, his home country, and explores the relationship between the modern progress and the human psyche. He is inspired by how people relate to one another in the modern times and how architecture and city planning imposes social hierarchies.

The sculpture speaks for itself. Built to look like a staircase, it shows the social hierarchies perfectly. The higher up you are on the staircase, the higher your status. The repetitive doors and the windows on each stair mirror the bland buildings people live in now, impressive, but indefinately renforces the social prejudice in the society.
