The latest exhibition, 'London Pictures' by British artists George Passmore and Gilbert Proesch will portray a new face of London. The exhibits are of headlines cut from 4,000 newspaper headlines that have been stolen by the duo in the past few years.
The pair, who have worked together since meeting at art school in 1967, are known for their immaculate tweed suits and often shockingly subversive and frank artwork involving sexual themes, religious symbolism and bodily fluids, according to London24.
"We have created a Dickens-like city of unhappiness and fear. Of threats and suicide. A version that is not just all blue skies," Gilbert was quoted as saying by The Independent. Each work, priced between £50,000 and £250,000, picks a theme from the headlines including "Yobs", "Money" and "Murder".
"It was very naughty because we realised very early on in the project that we couldn't get them legally.Nobody would let us have them, the publishers wouldn't keep their old copies, the shopkeepers wouldn't let us have them, they were very aggressive and very suspicious so we decided we would have to steal them all and one by one we stole 3,712.It was quite complicated to do." George was quoted as saying by the London24.
The exhibition is held at the White Cube galleries in London.
