Landau invites us to embark on a journey facilitated by the unique feature of one natural resource, salt. Drawing inspiration from the topographical, historical, biblical, cultural, political and environmental realms of the Dead Sea, she turns to the natural process of salt crystallization, exclusive to the Dead Sea, for her unique artistic techne. Baptizing profane objects in its waters, Landau relies on the Dead Sea to breathe life into inanimate objects, which emerge from their submertion as if belonging to a different time system, a different logic, or another planet yet their transformation unveils the divine and the eternal in nature.


Marking Landau's 15-year oeuvre and fascination with the Dead Sea, ‘Sigalit Landau SALT YEARS’ sheds new light on the fundamental leitmotiv that underlies her multifaceted artistic creation. Offering insights to the artist's visions, this volume explores Landau's career reflecting the breadth of her oeuvre, including exclusive works of art created specifically for this book, behind the scenes photos, personal working notes and perceptive essays. It is an invitation to take part in the transformative power of art and Landau's transformation of the Dead Sea into a laboratory and medium for new experiments, ideas and heart/ground breaking understandings, revealing the death bearing to life sustaining alchemy of salt.
