Giancarlo Scaglia studied Visual Arts in Lima, a city in which he has grown as an artist. Scaglia’s work seeks to reinterpret a number of events of the armed conflicts that took place in the 1980s and 1990s in Peru. His interest in recontextualizing these events within the field of art led him to question the origin of all that is avant-garde and to ask himself what determines whether an action or gesture is art or not.
Recent exhibitions include: El Frontón and Stellar at the Corkin Gallery in Toronto (2015), Suan Juan Poly/Graphic Triennial (2015), the 10th Biennale of Mercosul in Porto Alegre, Brazil (2015), ArteBA(U-TURN) at the Bendana Pinel Art Contemporain Gallery (2015), Stellar at the Bendana Pinel Art Contemporarin Gallery (2015) Nunca fuimos la revolución, at Revolver Galería (2011), and El Infierno en Chorrillos at the AFA Gallery in Santiago de Chile (2010). The artist is represented by Revolver Galería in Lima, Peru; Metales Pesados Visual in Santiago, Chile; and Bendana Pinel Art Contemporain Gallery in Paris, France.
