Gilbert and George - Ginkgo Pictures: Venice Biennale, 2005

£39.99

Product description

British Council, London, 2005, first edition, self-wrap paperback, 8vo, landscape format, 80pp, illustrated by pictures of works in the exhibition.

For the British pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale, Gilbert and George produced a completely new group of pictures using the advanced computer technology they had been working with and perfecting over the previous two years. The leaves of the ginkgo tree were their departure point - a fan of gold that divides into two equal parts above a single stem. Every leaf is distinctive yet each conforms to the same pattern. Here, in the new pictures, Gilbert and George spread their vegetable forms like shapes in a kaleidoscope, unifying and separating, changing and diversifying, presenting themselves in ever-new and unexpected guises.

This book is a catalogue of the pictures shown at the biennale and includes text by Daniel Birnbaum and Michael Bracewell. Signed by the artists (see photo).

The book is in very good condition and shows no obvious signs of use.
