Tarrah Krajnak placed snapshots of dark-haired girls, posing in white pants and a blue tube top, on top of what looks like black laminate with golden veins running through it. Then she rephotographed them and the results, on view in a group show called "Eternal Om" at artist-run space Metro PCS, are striking, mostly because they reframe and give you a reason to really focus on the run-of-the-mill sexy posing in those snapshots. Other work in the show is striking, too, like the video Txerri
by French artist Bertrand Dezoteux. In it, an aggressive, overeager CGI pig runs around the village of Irissary in Spanish Basque country. 422 Ord St., 2nd floor, Suite D, Chinatown; through May 24. metropcs.la.
Thursdays, Saturdays. Starts: April 17. Continues through May 24, 2014
