Point D'Ironie #22: Gilbert and George
"For the second time and because we admire them so much, Gilbert & George are back with a new issue of Point d’ironie. Their art life together began during the late 1960s, when they were students at the Saint Martin’s School of Art in London. Known for their tailored suits, Gilbert & George present themselves as living works of art, and develop their signature style through brightly colored pictures, videos, drawings and living sculptures. In this issue of Point d’ironie, created for their exhibition The Art of Gilbert & George, 2001, personal ads taken from the newspaper are juxtaposed with a triptych Class War - Militant - Gateway, highlighting the relationships between individuals and the communities to which they belong."
