This incredibly beautiful catalogue covers the work of Robert Gober as he developed an iconography once beautifully described as 'The Poetics of the Drain'. It charts his journey through his heart breaking reaction to the emergence of AIDs in the New York community, whilst grappling with issues around childhood, sexuality, religion, discrimination and power, relative to the disenfranchised and spurned, melding the human body with the drain. The book firmly places him in the forefront of his generation of artists.
It is a highly sought after volume, rare and difficult to find.
