At her core Landau is a sculptress; her work keeps a vibrant continuity between the formative living act of creating, and the final restive product created. She is best known for her epic multimedia installations which explore the complexities of living in a divided, traumatic geographical reality, arguably one of the most conflict ridden, volatile points on earth.
Landau’s work is of a bridge maker. [Un]consciously looking for new and vital materials to connect the past to the future; the west to the east; the private with the collective; the sub-existential to the Uber-profound; the found objects to the deepest epic narratives and mythologies.
