Their life is art
Filmmaker, Julian Cole first met Gilbert & George when he modelled for them in 1986. His intimate and moving portrait filmed over 18 years, reveals for the first time the individuals behind the living sculptures. The film traces their lives from humble beginnings to the world's artistic stage where they have performed their enigmatic and controversial double act for four decades. Having mounted more exhibitions around the world than any other living artist, G&G's motto 'Art for All' is assessed through their ground breaking shows in Russia, China and beyond revealing how their art can transcend cultural barriers.
