Little things made big
You have to pull aside two heavy, gray curtains to get into the dark back gallery at Matthew Marks, where Trisha Donnelly's untitled film currently plays on a screen as wide as the wall. You sit in cushioned seats and watch a high-resolution image of a torn net blowing back and forth; then there's a blur of fluids, like those running across a windshield in a car wash. Then you're staring at what could be a blown-up view of a petri dish, or maybe some gunk and scratches on a camera lens. All these images, which normally would seem incidental, seem weighty on that screen. 1062 N. Orange Grove Ave., W. Hlywd.; through Sept. 21. (323) 654-1830, matthewmarks.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 20. Continues through Sept. 21, 2013
