"Gilbert and George: Twenty-Three Haunts"
2005-09-15 until 2005-12-31
Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art
Istanbul, , TR Turkey

Proje4L: ‘Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art’ is pleased to announce the imminent display of Gilbert and George’s ‘Twenty-Three Haunts’; a vibrant, large-scale photographic collage work, depicting integrated urban images of street signs, graffiti, and invariably the artists themselves. The acquisition of this piece symbolizes the continuing efforts of the museum to bring important International contemporary Art to Turkey.

This newly acquired piece is part of a series of works entitled; ‘East One Pictures’, which depict the common motifs that exist in the area of London where the artists have been living and working for over thirty-five years. The recently acquired work will join the current exhibition, ‘A View from 1988 Up to Now’, at The Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art, from September 15th.

Gilbert & George are two of the most important and influential avant-garde artists in today’s contemporary art world. They began working together in 1967 and in 1969 they presented their first ‘living sculpture’. Using themselves as the subject, the artist and the art works became one and the same. There work explores subjects ranging from city life, religion, scatology, sexuality, contemporary culture and humanity as a whole. Gilbert & George were Great Britain’s representatives at this year’s Venice Biennial and are due to undertake a major retrospective exhibition at the Tate Modern, London in 2007
