You can walk into an art exhibition and nothing – not one of the dozens of objects and images adorning walls and plinths and floors – will provoke interest."Fossil Coca-Cola Bottles," 2015, is one of the cool things you'll find in "Faux Guide," Moroccan-born artist Yto Barrada's second exhibition at Sfeir-Semler Gallery.The centerpiece of the exhibition is Barrada's 2015 short film "Faux Depart" (False Start).Barrada even looks in on one fossil-making craftsman as he goes about his work.Any number of other works claims to be devised from fossils or admit to being fake fossil reproductions.One thing that stands out about Barrada's work is the strong sense of aesthetics that unifies the show.Yto Barrada's "Faux Guide" is up at Sfeir-Semler Gallery through Aug. 27 .
