“He journeyed from France to the crappy land of online UFO videos and single-highhandedly raised the bar on realism,” said Captain Disillusion when he featured the artist Barzolff on the AOL children's web series he hosts. Right now at Here Is Elsewhere Gallery, you can sit on a couch and watch the fake, hyped UFO video Barzolff made in 2009. But the more gripping and unnerving animations in the show are Barzolff's chicken feet, figures with five wiggling toes in place of their heads and torso, which run around on skinny little legs. They get run over by a tank in one video and feature in another that plays in a kitschy shrine Barzolff built. 8687 Melrose Ave., #B222; through Aug. 2. info@hereiselsewhere.com, hereiselsewhere.com.
