b. 1954 in Wallingford, United States; lives and works in New York
Robert Gober is presenting some of the doll's houses he so painstakingly created early in his career, objects which recount in all simplicity the story of his life and the genesis of his huge oeuvre. The questions of sexuality, nature, politics and religion that have pervaded that oeuvre for over thirty years have their roots in his childhood memories. Washbasins, doors, cradles, chairs and human body parts permeate a quasi-surrealistic narrative whose details are reminiscent both of a normal domestic setting and an utterly personal history.
