Two volumes in slipcase

This publication catalogues and explores a sculptural installation by sculptor Robert Gober. The work explores questions of sexuality, religion, relationships, nature, and memory, all informed by the political climate of the time.

Loosely following the floor plan of a church, the installation brings together many of Gober's known sculptural motifs and introduces new ones exploring uncharted artistic territory. The first of the two volumes includes a comprehensive essay by Brenda Richardson written over the course of the two years of the installation's development. Richardson spent hours in the studio in conversation with Gober, and her Lexicon provides an unprecedented glimpse at the working process and multiple layers of meaning in Gober's complex work. The lavishly illustrated second volume reproduces 50 full-colour photographs of the completed work.
