Performance artists Gilbert Proesch (Italian, 1943-) and George Passmore (British, 1942-).
Biography provided by Focal Press
Former performance artists Gilbert and George (Gilbert Dolomites  and George Totnes ) who played on their sense of photographic time as they posed for hours as living sculpture, manipulated themselves as the content in their series of photographs presented in a grid formation. Photography became their vehicle for suspending movement and memorializing their daily lives and blurring the boundaries between art and life. Their graphic, colorful, monumental pieces, having much in common with sculpture, confront viewers with modern British social anxieties. Under the guise of respectable dandies, this duo uses an orderly, repetitive and accessible style to examine taboo subjects, especially homosexuality. Recently the artists have been making digital pictures.
