What a wonderful woman and wonderful works she makes! She could not stop smiling at the party Kamel Mennour threw for her in the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, with the Tintoretto's on the floor above blessing her below. Sigalit Landau's work for the Israeli Pavilion took you on a journey (through film, performance, sculpture, installation) that spoke not only of her personal inner world, but through water, soil and salt to the once vast Dead Sea and the conflicts surrounding that region.
