Catalogue Robert Gober – Displacements
This catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Gober – Displacements (02.02. – 21.04.2003).
Slowly but surely, Robert Gober’s art creeps in upon the spectator – as if one has picked up a secret message that warns of invasion. The message is so disquieting that it must be disguised to appear as ordinary, carefully handcrafted, seemingly ‘innocent’ objects.
Representations having to do with the body, sex, sexuality, mortality and social injustice have been paramount in Gober’s agenda. His works build a bridge between minimalist form, serial strategy and narrative content, and have had great influence on contemporary art.
