Elad Lassry always manages to make his classy, sexy, sleekly framed images confusing. At David Kordansky's Gallery 2, Lassry has hung long lines of slightly different photos of the same person doing almost the same thing — a man shrugging by a fridge with ice, a man smirking by a fridge with ice — next to each other and installed a chest-high shelf with dips that line up with his photographs. In an adjoining room, where a line of charcoal drawings hang, he's cut a long, thin window into the wall, which perfectly frames the images on the opposite side. It's hard to look at anything without constantly thinking about the fact that you're looking. 3143 S. La Cienega Blvd., Unit A; through May 26. (310) 558-3030, davidkordanskygallery.com.
