Born in Wallingford, Connecticut, Robert Gober became an installation artist whose use of human hair, especially pubic hair, was shocking to some viewers. His work, quite often depicting body parts, is confrontational, mixing the commonplace with the symbolic and the surreal such as a candle sticking out of a human leg. He is also known for extremely banal subjects such as storm drains stripped of their functions and featured as isolated objects for contemplation and meditation.
