Nira Pereg’s work deals with ways that social structures intersect with the authority of the individual. Typically, her projects are documentary based, but transform reality into a quasi-theatrical event. Using complex editing techniques and various-scaled multimedia installations, Pereg’s interest in social schemes draws on a unique and personal perspective. “Re-looking” is a primary concern in her work practice and her everyday life, and often builds on periods of intense travel and close observations.
Pereg has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as Hirshhorn Museum, Smithsonian Institution in DC, The Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in Berlin. Her works have been exhibited in group exhibitions at PS 1 in New York, ZKM in Karlsruhe, Haus Der Kunst in Munchen, Edith-Ruß-Haus für Medienkunst, The Tel Aviv Museum of Art and at various festival and galleries around the world. She is the recipient of the Nathan Gottesdiener Foundation Israeli Art Prize for a young artist, and was recently presented at the AICHI Triennale, Shanghai Biennial, and São Paulo.
