Close-up: Lauren DiCoccio's "Remember the Times"


Lauren DiCoccio is interviewed in this week's issue. One major element of "Remember the Times," DiCoccio's current exhibition at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, is a trio of shelves on which objects are arranged in a manner that suggests vanitas paintings or memento mori (she's even constructed a fabric skull) for endangered or near-extinct media and disposable or recycleable objects. Unlike paintings, though, DiCoccio's works possess a three-dimensionality that allows one to hone in on details and view them from a variety of perspectives. Here are fifteen close-ups from the show.
