Lauren DiCioccio: Remember the Times
Jan 13 – Mar 27, 2011

Sat, Jan 13-Sun, Mar 27

With the use of delicate materials, Lauren DiCioccio creates soft sculptures of objects disappearing from the everyday, for better or worse. Replicas of newspapers, currency, and plastic bags and bottles are formed out of dainty fabrics tediously hand-embroidered with thread. These mundane objects are made precious both to convey a sense of nostalgia and to underline the ugliness of waste by invoking the opposite attribute. They also serve as a reminder of our fleeting world and, by extension, our fleeting selves.
