Gallery Har-El - Elizabeth Bergner Street 8, Tel Aviv,
‘Green Scream’, Sigalit Landau’s exhibition at Gallery Har-El,, responds to “A Hymn to Green” written by poet laureate Nathan Zach in 2012. A poem celebrating and lamenting human nature, especially the ripening and maturing experienced by the poet roaming/reminiscing his youth on the one hand, and harvesting the metaphors of his legacy. In the new installation the viewer encounters a sequence of manipulated found objects and site specific sculpture. A weather-vane made of recycled street signs, stirring local disorientation in Urban-wastelands. Immersed in a grid of Judean desert livestock excrement, a cast flock of an invasive species: Rose-Ringed parakeets. Mediterranean dates and figs, barbed wire and cherries – different abject matter from the 70’s to the 90’s; mnemonics rise to the pandemic – trouble in ecotopia.
