Exhibition: Sigalit Landau: DeadSee
Known for a performative art practice that explores the landscapes of Israel, Sigalit Landau works in video, installation, sculpture, and drawing. Her elegant video, DeadSee, embeds the artist's nude body within a spiral of 500 floating watermelons, gradually unfurling in the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea. The piece reinscribes the representational tradition of "still life" with unexpected layers of reference and movement. Landau uses forms and sites that link the ancient and contemporary worlds; the spiral, the body, and the watermelon?with their allusions to antiquity?float in waters cited in the Bible and that today create common border among Israel, Jordan, and Palestine. With the green skins and hot red interiors of the melon, the pale figure curled in their midst, and the brilliant cyan surface, Landau composes a refined study in formal contrasts. Yet she also creates an image of interdependence: both fruit and flesh are largely comprised of water, dynamic and organic, yet vulnerable in the harsh salinity of the sea.

Family Show: Khumariyaan
Pakistani music concert for families
With its propulsive, furious sound, Khumariyaan (?The Intoxicators?) has reawakened the live music scene in Peshawar, Pakistan, the ancient crossroads through the Khyber Pass whose contemporary culture is under attack from within and by outside factions. The lute-like Pashtoon rubab, is the meeting point for this instrumental hyper-folk jam quartet. It intertwines with the djembe-like zerbaghali (clay or wooden goblet drum) and Pushtoon sitar (long-necked lute). Underpinning these instruments with driving acoustic guitars, Khumariyaan?s rolling pulse and richly layered sound builds to frenzied intensity. It?s an addictive and accessible pleasure that?s ushering in a new era for an eclipsed music. ?With Khumariyaan?s dynamic spirit, the band is in fine form when straddling that line between genres and cultures, shifting from Eastern to Western and playing around with crescendos and stop-start staccatos.?
