The Art and Crimes of Ron English.
Through funerals we tend to celebrate not only someone dying but we also celebrate that persons life.

Israeli artist Sigalit Landau...
Barbed Hula, 2000 (video here)
“…with Sigalit Landau, the pathos inherent in the forms of her elders is here held back by the subversive linking of two antagonistic themes: the profane, rock’n’roll dancing; and the sacred, the icon of sacrifice. Rock my religion. Twist again in Jerusalem…
…Sigalit Landau enjoys mixing the painful and the sublime, the graceful and the sordid, naturalism and modernist chaos.”
“My generation is not as familiar with Bible stories or ancient mythology but they all watched TV. So I can paint these modern characters and make a reference to historical painting, I can make a reference to a TV show and people either get it or they don’t get it…”
