About the artwork
The limited edition print, Perv Duo Desecrate Tate Modern: Pictures, 2007, was donated by Gilbert & George to Tate on the occasion of their retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern.

The artists use the format of a newspaper headline poster, claiming to be from The Evening Standard, a free, daily London newspaper. The mock headline “Perv Duo Desecrate Tate Modern: Pictures” references their Bomb Pictures series which was created especially for the Tate Modern exhibition and uses real newspaper headlines.

The edition of 100 is signed and numbered by the artists and are framed to order. Please allow four weeks for framing and delivery.

About the artist
Gilbert Proesch and George Passmore met in 1967 at St Martin’s School of Art. At a time when sculpture was dominant at the school Gilbert and George saw the medium as elitist and poor at reaching beyond an art context. In response they made themselves into living sculpture, sacrificing separate identity and subverting the very notion of creativity.

Gilbert & George first made their ‘photo-pieces’ in 1971. The aesthetic language of these pieces remains as their dominant form of expression. The subject matter of their work has gradually shifted in its emphasis of their personal experiences to concentrate on the realities of urban living and the constructs of this reality.
