The sculptures in Thomas Solomon Gallery's current show, “Objective,” fit together perfectly, even though all were made by different artists. Analia Saban's marble countertop mounted on linen hangs across from Ry Rocklen's cardboard-thin aluminum ladder, which bends as if resisting a heavy wind; it's adjacent to Richard Artschwager's Telephone Directory, which looks like a cross between an upright piano and a laminated cabinet. It's like what might happen if a surrealist and minimalist, maybe RenŽ Magritte and Carl Andre, collaborated on a housewares line: Everything is competently, concisely crafted but strange enough to hold your interest. 27 Bernard St., Chinatown; through Oct. 26.
