The Singing Sculpture push-up toy : Still dancing after all these years
Kit Grover, London (2007)
This tiny push-up toy replicates their famous ‘The Singing Sculpture’, a performance art piece, which they call ‘living sculpture’. The pair debuted the piece at Nigel Greenwood Gallery, London in 1970. The Singing Sculpture push-up toy was produced for the 2007 Gilbert & George retrospective at Tate Modern.
For their ‘living sculpture’ piece the pair stand on a table dressed in suits and metallic makeup. Throughout the day they execute precise robotic movements to the famous Flanagan and Allen song ‘Underneath the Arches’ Height 10.0 cm. Edition unknown.
