Pierre et Gilles Poster for their retrospective “Vingt Ans 1976-1996” in Paris at Maison Européenne de la Photographie, November 1996-January 1997. Pierre et Gilles, the collaborative couple, create their images through labor intensive means. Sets are built onto a stage in their studio, the poses planned, the lighting perfected, and then the models are dressed and makeup applied. Pierre shoots the photograph then Gilles uses his genius with the paintbrush to highly sexualize and idealize the ironic images that "[blur] the lines between kitsch, camp, and...glamour" Includes portraits of Marc Almond, Mirelle Mathieu, Catherine Deneuve, Serge Gainsbourg, Iggy Pop, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Nina Hagen, Madonna, and Paloma Picasso. Printed on thicker stock gloss finish. Measures 27 x 36 inches.
