An exhibition of new work by
Deborah Fisher and Lisa Mordhorst
at Area 405
April 24th - May 31st , 2009
Artist Reception Friday, April 24th 7-9pm
Announcing an exhibition of new and existing work by Deborah Fisher and Lisa Mordhorst. These two Brooklyn, NY artists create environments and architectural structures within the dark walls of Area 405.
Fisher's work draws from an earnest concern for climate change and the depletion of our natural resource. Her sculptures relate the disconnect between detritus and where it all goes when we're done with it.
Mordhorst's photographs and architectural structures portray a dislocated view of space and landscape by employing contradictory sensations of nostalgia, disorientation and familiarity, the generic versus specific, place and non-place, man made versus the natural.
Located in Baltimore's Station North Arts and Entertainment District and called "Baltimore's best alternative space to view art" in RADAR magazine, Area 405 offers the region's largest exhibition space. At 6,000 square feet, this former industrial site is an ideal context in which to present large-scale exhibitions and events.
This exhibition is free, open to the public, and handicapped accessible. For more information about the gallery or this exhibition, please visit Area 405's website at www.area405.com or call (410) 528-2101.
Gallery hours for relief are Sundays noon-3pm and by appointment.
