Barbed Hula Sigalit Landau

a videoloop by Israelic artist Sigalit Landau.On a beach, the naked artist dances Hula hoop with a hoop in barbed wire. The barbs are turned towards outside, but her flesh is wounded. She continues to dance, vigorously, painfully until exhaustion. No political speech, no article can as well retranscribe the tragic situation of Israel today: barbed wires designed to defend, but which attack the even body that one wants to protect. An impressive, powerful and haunting work.
