Both visual and performance artists, Gilbert and George have been collaborating since they met at Saint Martins Art School in London in 1967.
Though perhaps better known for their work that hangs on gallery walls, Gilbert and George became innovators in allowing the artist to become the work, itself. Making their bodies the subject of the piece, Gilbert and George have created numerous groundbreaking performance art works over the past five decades.
Like Laurel and Hardy, Gilbert and George are never seen without their similar tailored suits. They work as a pair, but create performance art as one. Their living sculptures sing, stand, dance, talk, entertain and mesmerise over the course of many hours.
