About Sigalit Landau

Sigalit Landau merges a range of personal and national concerns in her site-specific installations, performances, and videos. Although Landau calls herself a “bridge maker”—connecting East and West, past and present—her complex works tend to focus on circularity and often reference her native Israel. Barbed Hula (2000) is a video of the artist, who is nude on an beach in Israel, performing a dance with a barbed-wire hula hoop, while in DeadSee (2005), she floats amidst an unraveling coil of watermelons, turning over each fruit to reveal its blood-red flesh. Her works often fuse performance and installation, improvisation and explicit reference to the excesses of consumerism. In Thread Waxing Space Installation (2001), for example, she occupied a gallery space for three weeks, filling it with spun sugar that she would wade through, replenish, and unwittingly send home with visitors as it stuck to their clothing
