From "Holding Remnants,'' Farnir Adamites's show at the Boston Sculptors Gallery, June 14-July 23.

His show features large paper sculptures that act as monuments and reminders of past objects, people and actions. The gallery says: "Influenced by the concept that traits and traumas can be imprinted on our DNA and passed down to future generations, Adamites's work embraces the physical and psychic state of repetition. Dowsing pendulums, disfigured orbs and husk-like forms are common visual themes employed by the artist to highlight the state of disorder at the point when memories become new experiences, and the familiar becomes foreign.
