Gedi Sibony

Ground Floor

October 9 – November 8, 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 decommisioned semi trailers.  Presented here is a group of them in the main room.  They are flat, hang on the wall, and have occurances 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.
