The future is built on the bones of the past. Cities expand from the remains of villages, but some part of those villages remain in the form of names or memories. New Delhi-based artist Gigi Scaria is interested in the way territorial, cultural and environmental elements can survive the passage of time. His new exhibition explores the peculiar growth of St. Louis atop the Mound Builder culture that existed along the Mississippi long before the French arrived. His outdoor sculpture Time combines the form of Cahokia Mounds' Woodhenge with the modern concrete high-rise building. A further selection of Scaria’s recent photographs and films is on display inside Laumeier’s Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center.
