‘Hands Bar’ 2010, 40 sec Loop Approx.

This video peice really made me think. The idea that i was only being given the chance to see the girls arms swinging on what seemed to be a playground handle bars or even the parrallel bars in gymnastics. The sense of her falling off was really strong, it made me feel nervous and slightly uncomfortable but at the same time i was really impressed with the skill of the action. The peice at the top, entitled 'hard to swallow' was slightly too obvious for me. The fragile nature of the glass with the bold, durable concrete seemed like to easy to choose. Although the idea that concrete is a porous material is ironic.

Among other artists who emerged in the 1980s, Gober explores sexual and cultural identity. "Most of my sculptures," he has said, "have been memories remade, recombined, and filtered through my current experiences." As well as evoking difficult childhood memories, Gober's slightly distorted objects—at once familiar and strange—seem to reflect unease with the domestic rituals and lingering puritanical attitudes of the suburban middle class. His surreal wax body parts, so extremely detailed that they include actual human body hair, prompt contradictory feelings of terror and fascination. This combination of sensations is a response to the paradoxical phenomenon that Sigmund Freud called "the uncanny": Through a small change, something ordinary reveals a hidden strangeness, bringing out long-forgotten fears.
