Artist Sigalit Landau frequently works in and around the region of the Dead Sea. Her spectacular salt sculptures are known worldwide and are now being shown for the first time in the Netherlands in this retrospective. The exhibition also includes several of Landau’s video installations.
The exhibition features artworks that have a direct relationship to the Dead Sea. By submerging objects in the lake’s extremely salty water, sometimes for months, they become covered with salt crystals. An ordinary shoe, a bundle of barbed wire, a fishing net or a dress emerge from the lake transformed.
