About Pegah Tabassinejad

Pegah Tabassinejad is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and wanderer, mostly presenting her work in the format of intermedial performances, interactive performances, cyberformances, digital performances, multi-channel video installations, and city projects. She is an uninvited guest living and working on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the xwməθkwəy̓ əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱ wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓ íl̓ witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) people.

Focusing on the notion of identity, Pegah has been exploring presence and absence, the real and the virtual, here and there, and the absence inside the two worlds that she inhabits in. While interested in body and body movements, she also questions the borders and boundaries of private and public space. Pegah is interested in the aesthetics of CCTV cameras, cell phone cameras, laptops, monitors, and the Internet.

She holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Simon Fraser University and a BA in Stage Directing from the Art University in Tehran. She also studied Visual Art at Azad University of Tehran and Contemporary Dance in Paris at Conservatoire de la Danse. She has taught various studio and seminar courses at the University of Art in Tehran, as well as leading workshops in Paris, Tehran and Vancouver. She is currently teaching at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Pegah’s work has been showcased internationally across Europe, North America, and the Middle East. Read more about Pegah’s work at
