Pierre et Gilles: 40 (special limited art edition)

  • Editors Notes

    This deluxe edition includes the artists' monograph and an original art print created especially for the limited edition, presented in a clothbound clamshell case. Glittery clothbound clamshell case, with magnetic flap closure. Numbered colour art print, signed by the artists. Limited edition of 200 copies. On the fortieth anniversary of Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard's romantic union, this volume traces four decades of artistic collaboration between the photographer and painter known as Pierre et Gilles. This year-by-year retrospective of their vast oeuvre, accompanied by an incisive essay by art critic Eric Troncy, showcases the genesis and development of their sublime, audacious, and explicitly confected fusion of photography and painting. Highly sophisticated and shamelessly sexy, their art-stylized, idealized painted photographs-synthesizes tropes drawn from celebrity and mainstream gay culture with timeless themes of religion, mythology, and beauty, and many works feature international stars including Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue, Karl Lagerfeld, Mick Jagger, and Iggy Pop.
