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 an
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.”
Le Petit Versailles, created in 1996, is a GreenThumb garden and a project of Allied Productions, Inc. a non-profit arts organization. LPV provides a green oasis for meditation and relaxation dedicated to fostering the interest of all segments of the community in the arts, broadening and enriching the general public through performances, screenings, workshops.
