    “I use the objects to reveal space”(the artist in an interview)
    Inspired by Arte Povera and Minimalism, Gedi Sibony assembles sculptures out of found objects, highlighting the poetry in everyday objects. Sibony’s emphasis is as much on the crude materials he uses as the space they are installed in. The meaning lies in the relation between the viewer, the object and the architecture. The title of So Long Ago, a wooden door reclining against a wall, evokes many possible meanings which are left to our own interpretation.
