- LANDAU Sigalit, Standing on a Watermelon in the Dead Sea, 2005. Video, 5’21’’.
A female body struggles to balance and remain vertical on top of a watermelon a few meters lower than the lowest place on earth, in the salt saturated waters of the Dead Sea. The under-water of the Dead Sea has never been filmed or seen. under these fiery waters, the small round planet/plant – the watermelon –, gravitates upwards, to overthrow me and bounce to the surface. All is buoyant and apt to float horizontally involving considerable arm movement. Like a bird flapping her wings… height above.
