Jeff Kurosaki and Tara Pelletier are a collaborative duo based in Brooklyn, New York. They build multi-layered narrative projects using sculpture, video, music and performance. Their work explores the tension between the fundamental rhythms of life and the ordered systems that humans design to make sense of these rhythms.
Kurosaki and Pelletier met in graduate school at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and have been working together since 2006. They have recently exhibited and performed at Bric Arts Media, NY; Vox Populi, PA; Space Gallery, ME, Wave Hill Gardens, NY; Abrons Arts Center, NY; Flux Factory, NY; Dumbo Arts Festival, NY; a 2010 European and Scandic performance tour; among others. They have held residencies through the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council; Painting Space 122; and Sculpture Space.
