Exhibition : The Urethra Postcard Art of Gilbert & George

 

THE URETHRA POSTCARD PICTURES reveal Gilbert & George at their most intent and artistically all seeing. These new pieces are united, compositionally, by their elements comprising “an angulated version of the sign of urethra”. This shape – a continuous rectangle of cards, with a single card in its central space – mimics the sexual symbol used by the one time theosophist C. W. Leadbetter (1853 – 1934) to accompany his signature, and as such proposes that this group of new art works is infused with a still confrontational libertarianism.

White Cube is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm. For further information, please contact Honey Luard or Sara Macdonald on +44 (0)20 7930 5373.
