Untitled 1978 - 1979

For the 2013 Biennale, Robert Gober tells, in all simplicity, the story of his life – and the genesis of his oeuvre - through some of the dolls’ houses he painstakingly created in the early years of his career. Initially he was reluctant to think of them as worksof art but he soon saw that “each house became more complex and more interesting to conceive and constructe”, until he realized that it wasn’t actually thedolls’ houses that he was interested in: what fascinated him was “the house as a symbol”, with all its potential for narrative tension. In fact, the questions of sexuality, nature, politics and religion that have pervaded Gober’s oeuvre for over thirty years have their roots in his childhood memories. Washbasins, doors, cradles, chairs and human body parts pervadehis oeuvre; the details evoke an ordinary domestic setting but within this there is also a highly personal narrative. His sculptures are accompanied by a series of drawings and some hand-painted wallpaper.
