Jade Pegler was born in Wollongong and has lived there ever since. Recent projects include ‘The Demonstrables’, an exhibition at the completion of a one year residency at Wollongong City Gallery, and ‘Holocene,’ a solo exhibition at Gallery 9, Sydney, which included Jade’s first stop-motion animation.
"Human existence is so interwoven with paper and textiles that their absence is almost unimaginable. I find satisfaction in constructing these 'curiosities' from materials that are so familiar, investing them with a life of their own. Like monstrous specimens from some far-fetched chronology, odd relics or beings from a future history; these fictions are meticulously crafted from the dross of the everyday." Jade Pegler, June 2009
