Artist Statement 2019

Peggy Wallach has had a career as an international performer and performance artist, working across the entire spectrum of the visual and performing arts, predominantly in interactive performance/based installation and experimental theatre.

Wallach constructs large-scale, environmental, site-specific, interactive installations that foster community inclusiveness, which are temporal and ephemeral; her pieces always embodying text. The making is performative and engages audiences, community spaces, and the environment directly. The public experiences not only the energy and visual spectacle of the work whilst it is being made but Wallach encourages active participation and a poetic or critical reflection.
