Sandrine Schaefer [Boston]
Sandrine Schaefer is a Boston-based Artist, Writer, and Curator. She is a co-founder of The Present Tense, an art initiative that produces and archives live art events and exchanges in transient spaces. She has been actively showing her own work and the work of others internationally since 2003.
Sandrine's ephemeral artwork explores cycles of the invisible becoming visible. Sandrine is inspired by site sensitivity, the relationship between accumulative action and endurance, manipulating duration to challenge the parameters of real time, and the promise of collaborative imagination. Her work playfully addresses the shared human experience of fitting in, both corporally and conceptually.
ABOUT GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE
Grace Exhibition Space opened in 2006 and is 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. We believe this is how performance art is meant to be experienced.
"There is no designated stage area, blurring the line between audience and performer, and seating is sparse, as participating in the performance is encouraged. The unknown terrifies you, and yet something, maybe this very feeling, pushes you inside. Welcome to Grace Exhibition Space." Terri Ciccoe. Bushwick Daily January, 2013/
"On each night, and in each performance, the human body is redeemed from the mundane and made anew." David Lagaccia, Williamsburg Greenpoint News+Art (June, 2012)
