Sigalit Landau – Hopes

A woven rope binds together a group of hanging loops. A group/society/crowd is preparing towards an act of erasure, cessation, blindness. When our field of vision is obstructed by the end, it is impossible to think about any future. Our experience in the Dead Sea has proven how much ropes and salts are fond of each other. The crystals forming around “Pinning Hopes” stabilize and hug the collective bunch of loops. They are saturated in the bitter water and tears of the lowest point on Earth; the environment evaporates in front of our very eyes while we search for memories. Facing Masada: great hopes are nowhere to be found. But there is action. There is the act of art. The art of recycling meanings and earth art which opens its wide mouth along the northern shores of the sea. A chronic man-made tragedy of a dying lake.

Sigalit Landau (1969 Jerusalem) lives and works in Tel Aviv.
