Sigalit Landau (born in Jerusalem, 1969, lives and works in Tel Aviv) is one of the most important Israeli artists working today. Her complex works touch on a number of social, humanitarian, and ecological issues, embracing topics such as homelessness, banishment, the relationships between victim and victimizer and between decay and growth. She achieves this through a diverse range of materials such as salt, sugar, sand, bronze, marble, and ready-made objects. Much of her work is concerned with the human condition and the body (often her own) is a key motif.

Landau first represented Israel at the Venice Biennale in 1997 in a group show, followed by a solo presentation in the Israel national pavilion in 2011. She has featured in numerous exhibitions and museums, such as Documenta X in 1997, MoMA, New York in 2008 and a retrospective at Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) in 2014. Her work is found in many major collections, including MoMA and Centre Pompidou.
