CAN YOU DIG IT?

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.” Pictured: detail of “Icarus and Daedalus.” Opens 6-8 p.m. Sat.; ends April 12, xiemclaycenter.com
