Daniel Peltz

Through his public projects and media installations, Daniel Peltz explores complex social systems, attempting to provoke ruptures in the socio/cultural fabric through which new ways of being may emerge and be considered. To accomplish these goals, he uses a range of intervention, ethnographic and performance strategies. His projects often take the form of existing social systems to directly engage non-art audiences in the language of critical art practice.

Peltz was a Fulbright scholar in Sweden from 2007–08 and since 2009 has co-directed the artist-run organization Rejmyre Art LAB in Rejmyre, Sweden. He has been a resident artist at Yaddo in the USA, Helsinki International Artist Program in Finland, International Artists Studio Program in Sweden, Artspace in Australia, Cemeti Art House in Indonesia and Spaced in Western Australia.

Recent exhibitions, public interventions and commissioned projects include:

• •When we dig, things come up, Tom Price, Western Australia [2013–15] 
• Faith, hope and deficit, Botkyrka Konsthall, Sweden [2013]
• Unrealized gain/loss, Cemeti Art House, Yogyakarta, Indonesia [2011]
