La danza fenicia de la arena / Phoenician Sand Dance. Sigalit Landau
Sigalit Landau, who began her artistic career in the nineties, reinterprets her sculptural works through the use of the body in performances in front of the camera. Here, she works repeatedly with symbols, images, places and narratives as therapeutic representations of the wounds caused by her historical, personal and cultural condition. Phoenician Sand Dance draws its title from the almost constant presence of the sand and sea. The book features and analyses the works exhibited in the Capella MACBA from 21 November 2014 to 15 February 2015. Landau’s video sculptures, where people and objects interact, condense a time in which the actions seem to have no beginning or end. They speak in a hypnotic way of the lack of progress and improvement; they describe the needs of the other, whether in play, survival or conflict.
