For her exhibition "Correspondence" at Ambach & Rice gallery, German artist Martina Sauter photographed movies playing on her television set, focusing on obscure passing moments. Then she combined these rephotographed stills with images from her own life a plant in her apartment, a door handle, a weather-worn wall. Looking at the pairings, you get that vague feeling of recognition, the kind you might get after glimpsing a minor celebrity at a coffee shop and trying hard to remember where you've seen her before. 6148 Wilshire Blvd.; through July 7. (323) 965-5500, ambachandrice.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 25. Continues through June 30, 2012
