Landman was born in Toronto in 1982 and completed her B.Ed in Fine Arts and Art education at "Hamidrasha" School of Art, Israel in 2009. Her latest shows include “Traces”– The Biennale for Drawing in Israel and "Fresh Paint 3" at the Israeli art fair.

Often, assessing human situations using an animal slant.

Project approach

The pack is a light installation constituting of hand cut light boxes which create new beginnings through the empty spaces given by light emerging from the drawings on the wall. The artist criticizes the social structures that humanity has developed as security measures which, contrary to their intention, have become isolating and threatening. In this installation, Landman artificially recreates a feeling of security that exists within a pack of wolves, which simultaneously portray a feeling of threat and alarm. At first the viewer is drawn to the mysterious light but then realizes the danger within.
