This is the candid, revealing inside story of one of the great and most original art acts of our time: the enigmatic living sculptures based in Spitalfields in London's East End. Gilbert & George are unquestionably among the most important and original artists of our time. Critics have come to recognise the artists' vision and to regard some of their works as among the major pictures of the century.
In this delightfully candid and engagingly informal portrait, Gilbert & George reminisce about their family upbringing in the country (George in Totnes, Gilbert in the Italian Dolomites), their instant friendship at St Martin's School of Art in the late 1960s, their life in Spitalfields in London's East End and the development of their art from living, singing sculptures to a line in controversial subject matter.
