The second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Gedi Sibony discussing his installation at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis. Click on the image to hear/download the show!
In the two images above, you can see how Sibony thought through and modeled his Pulitzer installation in a show at Berlin’s Galerie Neu earlier this year. The plywood construction on the left references Pablo Picasso’s Fireplace (1916-17), which is included in the Pulitzer show.
Titled “In the Still Epiphany,” Sibony’s intervention features artworks by artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso in dialogue with each other, as well as in dialogue with installations Sibony has made from multiple objects. As usual, the Pulitzer’s website is chock full of fantastic installation shots taken by Sam Fentress, pictures that reveal the show in a way most installation shots do not. They’re must-see stuff.
