American, b. 1954. Robert Gober’s meticulously crafted work employs everyday objects and imbues in them the ability to spark discussions about politics and sexuality. Gober is known for supplementing a surreal, yet meaningful alteration of familiar things like cribs, sinks, candles, and wax body parts, which he utilizes to create his disruptive sculptures. He was born on September 12, 1954, and worked as a carpenter and a studio assistant for Elizabeth Murray before carving an identity for himself. He is best known for his work "Untitled Leg" (1989-1990), made of a beeswax leg adorned with human hair and clothes.
