Pegah Tabassinejad is an Interdisciplinary artist, educator and wanderer mostly presenting her work in the format of video installations and performance. She has been working on the notion of ‘presence‘ and ‘absence‘ in her art practice since 2010. Exploring the gap between the real and the virtual, here and there, and the absence within the two worlds that she resides in, she also questions the borders and boundaries of private and public space.
Tabassinejad holds an MFA in interdisciplinary arts from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and BA in Stage Directing from the University of Art in Tehran. She studied Contemporary Dance in Paris at Conservatoire de la Danse and exhibited her work internationally. She has taught various studio and seminar courses at the University of Art in Tehran, international Institutes, as well as leading workshops in Paris, Tehran and Vancouver.
