The Israeli artist Sigalit Landau has always had a fascination for salt.
The Diply website reports that she loves above all to work with the saltest water on the planet, the Dead Sea, near her childhood home.
With her latest project, Salt Bride, the artist decided to return to hir roots and drop a wedding dress into the sea, before leaving it there for two years.
This may seem strange as an artistic process, but Sigalit Landau was inspired by a theatre play from 1916 calledThe Dybbuk. This is the story of a young Hasidic woman supposed to marry a man from a good family, but who becomes possessed by the spirit of her former deceased love.
The dress used in the artist's work is a replica of the dress used in in the play from the 1920s.
Sigalit Landau followed the gradual alteration of the dress under the sea, turning it every three months in order to examine how sea salt crystals transformed the dress into a masterpiece.
Today, the final result is part of the exhibitionSalt Bride, at the Marlborough Contemporary Museum in London
