Pierre and Gilles Summary

Pierre and Gilles by Sophie Duplaix

Renowned for their sophisticated portraiture - a mixture of painting and photography - Pierre & Gilles magnify the ordinary and re-enchant the world by surrounding the every-day in meta-fictional pictorial environments informed by mythology, the Bible, and fairy tales. Yet their symbolic and surreal back-at-you work is resolutely set in the contemporary world with the influences of art, cinema and popular culture clearly present. This book comprises 80 works from the late 1970s to the present, drawn from international and private collections that accompanied a Spring 2017 exhibition at the Ixelles Museum in Brussels. For their numerous fans, this book is a must: there can never be too much of Pierre & Gilles.
