Too much attention

Peter Fischli and David Weiss, collaborators referred to as Fischli/Weiss over the three decades they worked together, have always been outstandingly ambitious in their use of simple things. Their current show at Matthew Marks, begun before Weiss' 2012 death from cancer, looks like a studio that hasn't been sorted in a while - cigarette boxes, buckets, Tylenol bottles, cleaning supplies, work gloves lying in boxes. Then you realize it's all sculpted, made of polyurethane and hand-carved to shape, and that the Tylenol label, for instance, has been hand-painted. This compels you to pay closer attention to the details, which makes the closeness of the attention Fischli/Weiss must have paid all the more impressive. 1062 N. Orange Grove Ave.; through April 12. (323) 654-1830, matthewmarks.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 18. Continues through April 12, 2014 (Expired: 04/12/14)
