By Karen Marta, Massimiliano Gioni, Robert Gober
Contribution by Johanna Burton

In placing us at a remove from our relationships to familiar, domestic objects and environments, the labor-intensive work of Robert Gober (born 1954) defies our understanding of accepted conventions and draws attention to the movement of meaning between materials and across personal histories.

Part of the 2000 Words series, conceived and commissioned by Massimiliano Gioni and published by the Deste Foundation, 2000 Words: Robert Gober presents the entirety of the sculptor's works in the Dakis Joannou Collection and includes an essay by Johanna Burton that examines how the artist's work alloys personal histories with collective experience.
