For over twenty years, Gedi Sibony has transformed cast-offs and other found materials into spare, elusive works of art, forging an evocative new strain of Minimalism from the salvage of contemporary life. This richly illustrated monograph surveys a decade of his varied production. Featuring newly commissioned texts by art historian Rhea Anastas and artist/poet Renee Gladman, as well as an interview with Sibony by Robert Enright, All These Hands Are Made of Crumbs surfaces points of connection between distinct bodies of work: from the artist's acclaimed series of found paintings cut from the sides of decommissioned semi-trailers to the subtle sculptural objects that, for him, serve as "guideposts for reframing the experience of place."
