    Nira Pereg's work deals with ways that social structures intersect with the authority of the individual. Typically, her projects are documentary based,but transform reality into an quasi-theatrical events. Using complex editing techniques and various-scaled multimedia installations, Pereg's interest in socials schemes draws on a unique and personal perspective. “Re-looking” is a primary concern in her work practice and her everyday life, and often builds on periods of intense travel and close observations.

    Invert portrays 24 hours in an inverted world where the inanimate and the human are based on a logic of complementary colors (black turns white, red turns green, blue turns orange, and yellow turns purple) and an inversion of light and shadow (infiltration of light darkens the negative, and shaded places become phosphorescent). The result seen on film (on the celluloid) is a positive image, with surprising distortions resulting from the manual inversion process.
    The film begins at the crack of dawn, when the house is bathed in darkness; it concludes at nightfall, as light enters. Invert, the figure of the artist in color reversal, moves around with eyes shut, ears blocked, and nostrils plugged. He attempts to maintain the order in his inverted world by performing everyday chores and trying to teach his parrot to speak. The words, names of the objects appearing in the film, are uttered in Hebrew, but backwards.
