Gilbert & George
Gilbert Prousch, b. 1943 (San Martin de Tor, IT); George Passmore, b. 1942 (Plymouth, UK); live and work in London, UK

The two artists began working together in the late 1960s with performances in which they presented themselves as living sculptures. Everyday rituals, such as eating, drinking or going for walks, were exaggeratedly celebrated and photographed. Since then, the artists have pursued a variety of projects involving editions of literature and photographs.
