Book conceived by the artist, based on the installation she developed for the Israeli Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale.
This book was conceived by Sigalit Landau; it assembles the principle stages in her work and presents the installation titled One man's floor is another man's feelings that she has developed for the Israeli Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale. This title, pointing to the interdependence of our destinies and the feelings uniting us to each other, corresponds to a constant concern in her approach. It is largely reviewed here, as a founding principle of her Venetian exhibition and of other important projects which follow from it.
In her work, Sigalit Landau (born 1969 in Jerusalem, Sigalit Landau lives and works in Tel Aviv) answers poetically the warnings of the time. Her engaged moves turn individual, philosophical or political questions into universal ones. To achieve that, she often combines performances, installations, objects and videos. Her works have the capacity to crystallize into one image, or one object, as shown, for example, by the immense notoriety of her video Barbed Hula, with her realizations becoming the symbol of collective challenges. The necessity of this move explains the prominent place she now occupies in the realm of the community of artists who are indispensable for the reinvention of the world.
