Artist Immeserses Gown In The Dead Sea For 2 Years And It Transforms Into a Salt Crystal Masterpiece

Israeli artist Sigalit Landau decided to submerge herself into the mystery and effects of the Dead Sea. She dipped a down in the salt-rich waters in 2014, and recently removed it to be seen for display. The results are a stunning crystallized dress, which seems nothing short of surreal and straight from a fairy tale. Take a look below at the uncanny images.

Shibari Art by Garth Knight

Garth Knight is an Australian artist based in Sydney. His multi-disciplinary practice covers various areas including installation, sculpture, and photo media. Many of his works include the use of rope bondage pieces based in the shibari tradition, both as erotic and sculptural forms, creating tableaux of intricate, decorative networks that connect ideas of strength and pleasure with those of surrender and abandonment. Garth uses the rope both in a decorative sense, to draw the image, as well as psychological, to place the subject and himself into a state of altered or transcendental reality which is reflected in the images.

FEATURED ARTIST: Zarouhie Abdalian

Zarouhie Abdalian’s practice is rooted in the particularities of site and context. Through this lens, she responds to the specific attributes of a given location, architectural setting, or social landscape. Abdalian creates site-specific sculpture and sound installations characterized by an economy of means that tells the story of the surrounding architecture. She performs simple operations on familiar materials to create sculptures and uses quotidian materials to activate spatial boundaries through her installations. 

Zarouhie Abdalian (b. 1982, New Orleans, LA) lives and works in Oakland, CA. She studied at the California College of the Arts, San Francisco and Tulane University. In 2012 she was awarded the SECA Art Award by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Most recently, Abdalian was the subject of solo exhibitions at Clifton Benevento, New York; Altman Siegel, San Francisco; and Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley. Recent exhibitions include Simon Preston, New York; Lulu, Mexico City; Prospect.3, New Orleans; and the 8th Berlin Biennale. Abdalian’s Chanson du ricochet is currently installed at MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA through the end of 2016.

Throwback Thursday!

Three years ago in 2013, as part of our Performance Series, we hosted the world premiere of NOTATIONNOTATIONS, the first collaboration between German multimedia artist Susan Hefuna and Italian contemporary choreographer Luca Veggetti. Staged over three nights, the event proposed the idea that if a line is the trace of a point in motion, then the human body moving through space is also a drawing.

Both artists place drawing as the foundation for their practice, especially Hefuna who is known for her grid drawings commenting on Middle Eastern culture. This 2-year project started shortly after our Executive Director, Brett Littman, introduced them to each other in 2011. The concept was that Hefuna would prepare large chalk drawings on the main gallery floor and then dancers, moving along choreography by Veggeti, would gradually erase the drawn surface through their repetitive, physical gestures. The drawing would transition through the movement and become immaterial. As Littman said in an interview with Artspace, the performance “played with the idea of absence and presence.” Accompanying the performance, there was a projection of the dramatic creation of the web of chalk lines on the floor. We also exhibited Hefuna’s multilayered ink drawings on tracing paper and her latest video installation at the time, NYC Crossroads, which portrayed the movement of pedestrians in Manhattan as a kind of choreography that connects people to one another.
