Gilbert & George the singing sculpture 1992

- GILBERT & GEORGE, The Singing Sculpture, 1992. Video, 20 minutes, sound, color.

In the performance The Singing Sculpture (1992), reconstruct a performance originally enacted in 1969, in the course of which they stood on a table in black woolen suits with their faces painted gold. Performing the same cyclical series of actions, they repeatedly sing a song popular in pre-WWII Britain. Their resemblance to sculptures, or identical objects of sorts, constitutes a form of ironic social commentary, and an externalization of eccentric behavior by theatrical means.

Gilbert Proesch was born in Italy, 1943; George Passmore was born in England, 1942; they live and work in England.
