Gilbert and George
by Trevor Batt

ISBN: 9780714860640
PUBLISHER: Phaidon Press Ltd


Living sculptures whose life is also their art, Gilbert and George form a uniquely eccentric, exciting and enduring partnership. This film, made to mark the unveiling of the new body of work based on bodily fluids and called "The Fundamental Pictures", traces their history back to the first meeting at St Martin's School of Art in 1969. It goes behind the Georgian facade of their East End house to watch them in their studio creating a new body of work and follows them through their everyday lives: meals at the Market Cafe, walking through the streets of Spitalfields, reviewing their collections of erotic literature and arts and crafts pottery and drinking champagne at home with Shere Hite. They talk about their compulsion to "take art to the edge", to show the viewer his innermost thoughts, and commentate on shows of their photoworks in London, Shanghai and Bologna, enjoying the fruits of their popularity across Europe. Critics such as Andre Graham Dixon, Sarah Kent and David Sylvester add their voices to the continuing debate - are Gilbert and George radical revolutionaries or bastions of the old morality? - and Norman Rosenthal of the Royal Academy praises the artists' truth and grandeur.
