The first comprehensive publication on the work of Sigalit Landau, one of Israel’s most outstanding contemporary artists, who gained international renown after her participation in documenta X.
Sigalit Landau (*1969 in Jerusalem) develops subjective environments in which she alludes to both the historical and the contemporary. Using materials such as bronze, papier-mâché, and machine parts, her installations and readymades create a world in which the daily fight for survival, uprooting, the search for identity, and social revolution in Israel are as significant as those of individual experience, longing, memory, and a personal view of the world.In the artist’s latest project, The Dining Hall, which was recently exhibited at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Landau focuses on her personal view of eating and drinking as a cultural metaphor, as the epitome of an intimate and social moment, visually and spatially translating these themes into her impressive installations. This accompanying publication is the first to unite all of Landau’s projects and is therefore a comprehensive introduction to the world of images and art of this extraordinary, multifaceted Israeli artist. Exhibition schedule: KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, November 18, 2007–January 13, 2008SIGALIT LANDAU (* 1969, Jerusalem), one of the most important contemporary artists in Israel, lives and works in Tel Aviv. Her works have been shown in many venues in Israel, the US, and Europe, including documenta and at the Venice Biennale.
»Israeli artist Sigalit Landau zooms directly into the grayness of everyday life, regarding herself as an archeologist of hidden and buried emotions.«
