A high place in the Bible, the lowest point on Earth and a wonderful natural panorama, the Dead Sea is the main source of inspiration for Sigalit Landau. The contemporary Israeli artist has developed a pioneering practice based on sea salt that is on display at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem until June. Things have been submerged in this salt-saturated lake for weeks, turning fishing nets, ballet tutus, Hasidic dress and piles of shoes into stunning white crystal sculptures.
