‘Gilbert and George’ was a ‘living sculpture’ exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria in September 1973. The children who visited the gallery were amazed at the two ‘bronze’ men, each of which was dressed in a charcoal grey, pin-stripe suit. Gilbert held a glove and George held a walking cane; together they looked like caricatures of the London ‘city slicker’. The sculptures were displayed on a table and beside them was a tape recorder playing the Bud Flanagan song, ‘Underneath the Arches’. The sculptures sang along with the tape while ‘George’ made a series of robotic moves. At the end of the song the sculptures took turns to rewind the tape and then return to repeat the sculpture for a total of five hours.
