Review:

27th Annual Lambda Literary Award Finalists for LGBT Nonfiction.--The Editors "Lambda Literary "

What claims our attention is not so much Gober's quotidian subjects as the intentness with which he reconstitutes ordinary objects; this is his way of possessing them. Gober's laconic perfectionism lends humdrum stuff an eeriness. I feel that eeriness in teh subtle shadow play he reveals in his plainly carpentered cloest, in the delicacy of human hairs inserted into the wax surface of a sculpted leg, and in the trompe l'oeil finesse with which he paints the label on the battered Benjamin Moore can. Gober keeps his virtuosity tamped down adn under wraps. His weird world is constructed with teh meticulousness of a jeweler putting together a Faberge egg.--Jed Perl "The New York Review of Books "

In the mid-1980's Robert Gober began to receive significant art-world attention for his sculptres of everyday domestic objects embedded with references to social justice, freedom adn tolerance. The oblique works offers a socio-political and psyhcological end-of-the-twentieth-century context to their mundane formal structures.--The Editors "THE Magazine "

The heart is an excitable physical organ that registers sensations of fight or flight and of love or aversion: the first and last unimpeachable witness to what can't help but matter, for good and for ill, in every life.--Peter Schjeldahl "The New Yorker "

Book Description The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) and Scalo Verlag, Los Angeles and Zürich (Zurich), 1997. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Photographically illustrated laminated paper-covered boards, no dust jacket as issued. Installations and sculpture by Robert Gober. Edited by Paul Schimmel. Essays by Hal Foster and Paul Schimmel. Includes a biography, bibliography and checklist of the exhibition. 104 pp. with 145 four-color plates. 11 x 11-3/4 inches. Published on the occasion of the 1996 exhibition Robert Gober at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. New in publisher's shrink-wrap. From the publisher: "In 1993 Robert Gober was invited by the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art to create a site-specific installation. For two years Gober worked exclusively on this project. The installation's central component is a life-size figure of the Virgin Mary. Standing in the middle of the installation on top of a sewer grate, she is pierced by a giant culvert pipe. In the back rushing water cascades down a staircase into another grate. To the left and the right of the Virgin Mary are two suitcases into which two other grates have been built offering viewers glimpses of a pristine subterranean tide pool and the enigmatic legs of a man holding a diapered baby. The installation is a disquieting reflection on Catholicism, gender, birth, and water's metaphorical ambiguity.". Seller Inventory # 100298
