Can You Dig It?

The following is from the Los Angeles Times yesterday for my friend Sierra Pecheur's show at the Xiem Clay Center.

Sierra Pecheur has always loved bones, so it's fitting that the L.A. artist created an installation evoking famous and infamous collections of human remains. But "DIG: An Imagined Archeo-logism," a show of more than 350 ceramic works at Pasadena's Xiem Gallery, is meant to look more like an archaeological dig than a morbid curiosity. "My intention was to answer the questions: 'What do we want to leave behind? How do we want to be remembered?' " Pecheur says. "I like the idea of bones being monuments."

Opens 6-8 p.m. Sat.; ends April 12, Xiem Clay Center
