  • Catalogue Essay

    “… we had always kept each image to a single panel. Then we discovered that it wasn’t necessary. Before we had thought of a four-panel piece as a four-part piece- four images, sixteen in a sixteen-panel piece and so on. We decided we could do exactly as we pleased.”
    Gilbert & George, 1986
