Sea Salt Sculptures

Salzburg is not only about music festivals; the Austrian city is also hosting an exhibition of the incredible artwork of Sigalit Landau at the Museum der Moderne.
We read on Austrian Fashion Net, a magazine we really like, that the Israeli sculptress, video and installation artist is presenting in this exhibition some of her most beautiful and poetic works; objects coated in salt crystals of the Dead Sea.

She immerses the objects during months in the saltiest sea in the world until they are completely covered in crystals. The most common or threatening objects, many of them, part of the artist's childhood memories, become incredible crystalline sculptures that seem out of a dream.

The exhibition at the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg also includes several video works of this contemporary artist who has already exhibited at Documenta and the Venice Biennale. You can visit this mesmerising exhibition until the 17th of November.
What better place than Salzburg, literally the salt fortress, to host the salt sculptures of Sigalit Landau?
