Sigalit Landau: The Burning Sea

Dvir Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of Sigalit Landau‘s solo show centered around the renowned salt works in the Israel Museum. The exhibition, The Burning Sea, opens on October 6, 2022 and is on view until June 17, 2023. For twenty years, Sigalit Landau has made art – both monumental and profoundly intimate – at the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Inspired by this primal place, Landau creates works of great beauty that address fragile dualities: life and death, injury and healing, destruction and hope. The Burning Sea presents a selection of Landau’s Dead Sea artworks of the last two decades, from glittering salt-encrusted sculptures through video works and photographs. The exhibition also premieres a new video trilogy that relates to her idea of building a bridge over the lake, a project that has engaged Landau for many years, first emerging in her memorable installation at the 2011 Venice Biennale, which is represented here for the first time in Israel. Following Landau into the salt-saturated water and experiencing both the magnificence and the devastation of this endangered site, the exhibition closes on an optimistic note, with the hope that we can build a bridge over burning water.

The exhibition, titled No Limestone, No Marble, opens on September 24 and runs until January 15, 2023. Israeli-born Chicago-based artist Agassi calls this project a “biography of the site” in which she develops a personal relationship with the past, present, and future history of a place in connection to her own. With this methodology, Agassi “sculpts” the site as a material, and creates a project from the specificity of the place in relation to the city of Chicago and the institution’s impact. A publication and performances are being planned in conjunction with this exhibition.

Sigalit Landau at Kunstfest Weimar 2022

Dvir Gallery is happy to share the participation of Sigalit Landau at the Kunstfest Weimar 2022 between August 24-26 at the Theaterplatz in Weimar. Der Olivenhain The artists redirect their gaze at the process of industrial harvesting of olives in the younger groves of Israel. In this installation Sigalit Landau and Yotam From show larger than life single olive trees in vertical format; trees of different ages, species, and sizes. These trees are shaken by giant mechanical »hands«. Spectators of »The Olive Grove« can wander across the Theaterplatz through a heterogeneous plantation and are confronted with the fact that the fascinating archaic symbol is now subject to the laws of efficiency and economy. The video installation does not lament this but rather amplifies the poetic biblical yearning. An Israeli and a Syrian Dancer are the physically present protagonists, relating to the trees and their space of meaning. The Theaterplatz becomes a place of grief, of pain, a space to regret and to protest, to be lost, to hope and to love. The internationally acclaimed, Israeli choreographer Nir de Volff will work together with Landau and From for the first time and create a choreographed performance for the Theaterplatz with an original score by Israeli composer Shushan Isaac.

Mircea Cantor. Fire Doina

Dvir Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of Fire Doina, a solo show by Mircea Cantor in Firenze, at the Base / Progetti per l’arte. The exhibition opens on July 25, 2022 wit the opening between 5pm and 8pm. The exhibition is open until September 10, 2022. “Fire doina” is a site specific installation made up of separate and autonomous elements that blend together to create a unique and unprecedented landscape. A common element of the works is that they are made from the beginning of the pandemic until a few weeks ago – when he made the video that bears the title of the exhibition in Romania – in addition to the various interventions in the space that establish a choral dialogue. As the artist himself points out: “The red line that connects the two video works and the other site-specific interventions is the idea of ​​abandonment. In the video “Fire doina” it is as if the viewer were abandoned in a forest, but also surrounded by the song that the soldiers play. It is a song so deeply rooted in the history of the Romanian national identity that it has been inscribed in the Unesco World Heritage. The sound appears as a pause in times of war where we don’t know what happens.
