David Mordini: Dis-Member


Editorial Review

Gallery Opening of the Week

Friday, Nov. 4, 2011

It has been awhile since we've seen the carved fiberboard sculptures of David Mordini, a talented area artist whose longstanding focus has been the human body. On Friday from 6 to 9 p.m., the wait will be over. That's when "dis-member," an exhibition of Mordini's distorted anatomical appendages and dislocated body parts - metaphors for alienation and disconnectedness - goes on view at Hillyer Art Space.

The show is one of two open-ing at Hillyer that night. Local photographer Min Enghauser will also be showcasing her pictures of California's Anza-Borrego Desert.

"David A. Mordini: dis-member" and "Min Enghauser: Desert Dwell" run through Nov. 23 at 9 Hillyer Ct. NW. 202-338-0680. www.artsandartists.org/hillyer. Admission to the opening reception is a $5 suggested donation.
