During her performance Give & Take & Send Away this afternoon, Israeli artist SIGALIT LANDAU offered the public a gift made on-site. Based on the visitors own key, an exact negative form is produced – symbolizing the “right of return”: be it a home in Europe or in Palestine: A refugee is left with keys to a place that exists no more.

Moreover, SIGALIT LANDAU has created a political and environmental installation for the Israeli Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale entitled One Man’s Floor is Another Man’s Feelings which presents a series of video, sculpture and image imbued with symbolic gesture (on view until 27 November 2011).
