Gilbert & George NEW NORMAL PICTURES
Created over the past two years, Gilbert & George’s NEW NORMAL PICTURES are a continuation of their street-level explorations of our modern world.
‘We are asking “What is human life?” and making pictures about it,’ the artists explain. Although these pictures predate the pandemic, they resonate with the universal experience of a ‘new normal’ over the past year as the world has adjusted to a fundamental shift in its daily reality. However, the phrase has a broader significance for the artists, who see it as a stand-in for the word ‘existential’, referring to a sense of normality that is constantly being adjusted and renewed.
