Sigalit Landau: The Dining Hall
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 artists 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 Landaus projects and is therefore a comprehensive introduction to the world of images and art of this extraordinary, multifaceted Israeli artist.
