Gedi Sibony, Installation view, Greene Naftali, New York, 2014
Greene Naftali is pleased to announce its fourth solo exhibition with Gedi Sibony, his first in its new ground-floor space. Continuing to recruit objects of disuse, Sibony presents a new body of work comprised mostly of pieces cut out of decommissioned semi-trailers. Presented here is a group of them in the main room. They are flat, hang on the wall, and have occurrences of paint used to block out logos or text. In the backroom is a small, playful ensemble of copies of a Fontana and two ancient figurines.
Gedi Sibony (b. 1973) lives and works in New York. Recent solo exhibitions include Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2014); Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, St. Louis (2012); Culturgest, Lisbon (2011); and Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis (2009). His work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.
