An exhibition by Alexis Pace

September 1-30

Opening September 1 - 6:30 -8pm.

Visiting hours
Thurs.- Sun. 2-7pm.

Alexis Pace is a NYC based artist and designer,her work often walks the thin line between the two disciplines. With a background in sculpture and education in Industrial Design (MiD from Pratt Institute Brooklyn, NY) her passion for manipulation of materials in evident in all avenues of her work.

Her background in Industrial Design has inspired her to mix different materials and mediums as the inspiration dictates. Sculpture, photography, mixed media, and popsicle sticks.
Her recent experiments have been treading the line between organic decay,
destruction and manipulation.
Inspired by the book “When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies” by Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter, this site-specific installation seeks to transform Petit Versailles into a Hanging Garden. Playing with how disembodied women’s bodies have become:dissected, rejected, mutated and recreated, this project seeks to turn the dismemberment on its head to empower both the subjects and the viewers." &

Vol de Nuit celebrates night and nature in song and film. The music by Debussy, Bellini, Schoenberg, Schubert and Villa-lobos, among others, spans eras, musical styles and geography. Deeply romantic, in Italian, French, German and Portuguese, these songs draw the listener into the nocturnal realms, offering access to the deeper layers of the unconscious that we encounter only in dreams or flights of insanity. Vol de nuit (night flight) is a journey of the human spirit through the sky, illuminated by the stars and the moon.
