Robert Gober


Robert Gober's meticulous sculptures explore sexuality, relationships, nature, politics, and religion. His work is often based on memories from his childhood or on familiar subject matter from around his home or studio. Sinks, doors, cribs, chairs, and body parts recur in his oeuvre. Among Gober's best-known works are large room-sized installations, sometimes incorporating running water and theatrical lighting. His work is made by hand in his studio with painstaking attention to detail.

Gober (born 1954) represented the United States at the 2001 Venice Biennale and has had one-person exhibitions at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; the Serpentine Gallery, London; and, most recently, the Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel . In 2007 his work was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Schaulager, Basel. He lives and works in New York.
