Sigalit Landau and her love affair with the Dead Sea

December 26, 2017

Sigalit Landau

Was born in Jerusalem where between 1990 to 1995, she studied Art at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. During this time, she spent one-semester as an exchange student at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York.

Salt Year’s

“Landau invites us to embark on a journey facilitated by the unique feature of one natural resource, salt. Drawing inspiration from the topographical, historical, biblical, cultural, political and environmental realms of the Dead Sea, she turns to the natural process of salt crystallization, exclusive to the Dead Sea, for her unique artistic techne. Baptizing profane objects in its waters, Landau relies on the Dead Sea to breathe life into inanimate objects, which emerge from their submertion as if belonging to a different time system, a different logic, or another planet yet their transformation unveils the divine and the eternal in nature.”
