    Rob Bell`s photo from his interesting trip to Israel…thanks to Gabe Avner and Avi Brickner for uncovering this interesting story of what is hanging on the pole at Tower of David in Israel!
    -Sigalit Landau – Wedding Dress
    A series of photographs documenting the process of consolidation of crystals on a black dress in the depths of the Dead Sea. The dress is a copy of the dress worn by Lea, the heroine of the play The Dybbuk, played by the legendary actress Hanna Rovina over four decades on the theater stage. Throughout the summer of 2014 Sigalit Landau and Yotam Frum followed the gradual accumulation of salt crystals on the dress which was sunk in the depths. The crystals return the Hasidic black dress to its original intent- a wedding dress.

    Motti Mizrachi – Engagement
    Engagement is based on a poem by Alexander Penn – Land, My Land. In the center of the work is a large white dress, decorated with lace, floating five meters in the air. A work of sculpture is placed beneath the canopy of the dress and in the background, Penn’s poetry will play.

    The main exhibition of Biennale2015, JERUSALEM.PASSAGES, consists of five large scale projects by five leading artists. The projects, chosen by the Advisory Committee of Biennale2015, was presented in the Tower of David Museum.
