Tim Marlow, George Passmore & Gilbert Proesch
Art historian Tim Marlow met the creative duo for a walk around their new exhibition: 'Gilbert & George: Major Exhibition', at the Tate Modern.
Arguably the most eccentric artistic double act and self-proclaimed living sculptures, Gilbert Proesch and George Passmore guided Tim around their feted exhibition as they discussed art, religion and the environment. The pair became famous in the early 1970s as performance artists, but later became famous for their controversial large scale photo-montages. Talking to Tim, they revealed how it feels to be ostracized by the art community and the media, as they continue to push the boundaries of art, society, good taste, and decency.
