Israeli artist Sigalit Landau for her project in 2014 loaded black mourning for three monthsthe dressat the bottom of the Dead Sea.
Project Sigalit called "Salty Bride". He was inspired by the 1916 play “Dibbuk” (“Between two worlds”) by the writer Semen An-sky. The plot of the play is based on Jewish folklore - a young man separated from the bride, concludes a contract with the devil and sells his soul. After death, his soul becomes a dibbuk - a demon who infuses the girl and makes her obsessed. The demon manages to expel, but the girl dies.
Gradually covering the dress salt symbolizes supernatural power, enveloping and turning the black fabric into a kind of wedding dress. The artist has documented the process of salt crystallization on the fabric. Now you can look at these photos at the exhibition at Marlborough London Art Gallery in London.
