SANTA MONICA, CA.- Christopher Grimes Gallery is presenting two solo exhibitions in conjunction with Pacific Standard Time LA/LA. In No more things. Koch presents a continuation of her Fundos series: photographs of the interiors of empty boxes, bags, and packages, manipulated to house and reflect light and mimic architectural scales. Koch began photographing for the Fundos series in 2001 while reading Paul Auster’s dystopian novel, In the Country of Last Things, which tells the story of a collapsed society with no economy or industry, in which the population must resort to selling scavenged, nearly forgotten objects to survive. In this collection of new photographs, Koch explores the feeling of vacuity when objects become obsolete and only their negative space is left behind. The result is a series of disorienting portals that hint at the inevitable downfall of a materialistic society.

In the South Gallery, Gianfranco Foschino is presenting an exhibition of video works. Using a fixed camera and time as his primary media, Foschino captures the subtle variances of the landscape, bringing attention to the effects of light in altering the drama of the natural scene. From peaceful, sun-drenched blue skies, to brooding storm clouds and the uneasy in-between, Foschino brings focused awareness to the celestial changes that are occurring around us at every present moment.

Lucia Koch lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil. In September 2017 she will be included in the PST: LA/LA exhibition, Condemned to be Modern, curated by Clara Kim, Curator at the Tate Modern, at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park. Recent exhibitions include Transparência e Reflexo, Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, São Paulo, Brazil (2016); Jameel Prize 4, Pera Museum, Instanbul, Turkey (2016); the solo exhibition, La temperatura del aire, at el Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Caja de Burgos (CAB), Burgos, Spain (2015); and Cruzamentos: Contemporary Art in Brazil, Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH (2014); among others.

Gianfranco Foschino is a key figure in a new generation of artists from Chile. Recent solo exhibitions include LOCUS, Museo de Artes Visuales (MAVI), Santiago, Chile (2016) and Hidden Stories, Stadtgalerie in Saarbrücken, Germany (2015). He has participated in a number of group exhibitions, including: We Were Here: Absence of the Figure, Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, CA (2016); Unsettled Landscapes, SITE Santa Fe, New Mexico (2014); and Monolith Controversies, 14th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice Biennale (2014); among others.
