Sigalit Landau (born in Jerusalem, 1969, lives and works in Tel Aviv) is one of the most important Israeli artists working today. Her complex works touch on a number of social, humanitarian, and ecological issues, embracing topics such as homelessness, banishment, the relationships between victim and victimizer and between decay and growth. Much of her work is concerned with the human condition and the figure (often her own) is a key motif. Using materials such as: salt, sugar, paper, bronze, marble, and ready-made objects, Landau creates installations which transform the space around her work. Landau first represented Israel at the Venice Biennale in 1997 in a group presentation, followed by a solo presentation in the pavilion in 2011. She has featured in numerous exhibitions and museums, such as Documenta X in 1997, MoMA, New York in 2008 and Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) in 2014. Her work is found in many major collections, including MoMA and Centre Pompidou.
