Robert Gober
Slides of a Changing Painting

 

OCTOBER 15, 2010–JANUARY 27, 2011

Slides of a Changing Painting (1982-1983) by Robert Gober is one of the artist’s earliest works, presenting the evolution of a single painting over the course of one year. The development of the painting, chronicled in time-lapse photography, reveals the artist’s transformation of the surface of a small board into a vast and varied platform of themes, objects, and landscapes. Many of the artist’s later preoccupations – the cropped human figure and images of water – appear fleetingly throughout the course of this work. Captured on film, Gober’s changing painting is reconstituted as a diary, a visual record of the year in which he produced this installation.

Robert Gober was born in 1954 in Wallingford, Connecticut. Gober represented the United States at the 2001 Venice Biennale and his work has shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and the Serpentine Gallery, London. In 2007 his work was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Schaulager, Basel, Switzerland. He lives and works in New York.

 

Slides of a Changing Painting was presented in the Lu & Chris Law Gallery from October 15, 2010 through January 16, 2011.
