JEFF HUCKLEBERRY + VELA PHELAN [BOSTON, MA]
Jeff Huckleberry and Vela Phelan have been collaborating since 1998. They are connected by a sureal network of intuition, which guides them into the unknown . Jeff and Vela preselect the objects needed to activate the moment and all other is left to chance.
�Their work offers up a raw, unpredictable and destabilizing encounter� Paul Couillard 2006
MILES PFLANZ [NYC]
Miles Pflanz practices subversive site specific work usually in groups in and around NYC. Trespassing, humor, walking, speech, eroticism, and menace are employed to make everyday life slightly askew.Miles Pflanz:
DANIELLE FISCHER [ISRAEL]
In the movement of everyday life I find complex beauty and decay. The water reflecting a chair through a plastic bottle, the paint peeling off with mildew on my building, I discover a color I have not yet seen. Mosaics of colors, sounds and forms enter my compositions distilled through my imagination and memories. I listen to the silence and the sounds surrounding me. I await these encounters when I stand on the threshold not exactly in and not exactly out. I wait for those moments where I can explore the in-between space of things that are at the same instance foreign and familiar. Tilting my head and moving the lens of my eye or camera I try to capture an expression of the world.
In my work I look to portray a visual language. The in-between space of a floating area. An area where something is in the air and on the water but at the same time does not rest on any one end. A surface that is barely felt but there. I am looking through photography video and painting on not modular canvas shapes to express this space of enigma I encounter with curiosity and question.

ABOUT GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE IN BROOKLYN, NYC
Grace Exhibition Space, since 2006, is the only gallery in New York City devoted exclusively to Performance Art. We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging performance works by the current generation of international performance artists, whether emerging, mid career or established.
Being a Brooklyn loft, our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. This is how performance art is meant to be experienced, and our mission is the glorification of performance art.
�Grace Exhibition Space is the sole gallery in this city that shows specifically, in its most intentionally narrow definition, Performance Art.� Patricia Milder, The Brooklyn Rail (May, 2011)
�Through such intimate encounters between performance groups and their guests, they could follow in the spirit of Yoko Ono�s Chamber Street loft or the Surrealist soirees of Paris� - Warren Fry, The Brooklyn Rail (August, 2007)
