Gilbert & George

Gilbert & George met whilst students studying sculpture at St Martins. In 1970 they made The Singing Sculpture in which they coloured their heads and hands, and whilst wearing their signature suits, sang Flanagan and Allen’s Underneath the Arches. Thus began the term ‘living sculptures’. They went on to concentrate on large scale photographic works.
