Gilbert and George

When Fashionista Cat was walking around the gallery she met artists named Gilbert and George. They gave her an invitation to their performance art event. “ Oh, what kind of performance will you do? This is so exciting!!” she said. Fashionista Cat is wearing Chloé.

Today is Gilbert and George’s performance day. They are at the gallery and they are wearing very similar suits. They painted their faces gold and were just standing and walking around. “ We are living sculptures.” he said. They are so funny. Whatever they do becomes art. Fashionista Cat and Tama are wearing Sonia Rykie.

When Fashionista Cat saw them at the party they were really shy. They didn’t say too much. Not even hello hello to friends. They are just standing and staring at other cats and that’s all they are doing. “ Are they still performing?” Tama asked. “ Maybe, as long as they are outside they are thinking they are sculptures.” Fashionita Cat said. Fashionista Cat, Tama, Ume are wearing Zero + Maria Cornejo.

“Hi, Gilbert! How are you? “ Muku said. “ Oh..Mr. Muku. How are you doing? I have to find George.” Gilbert could not stand being by himself. He has to be with George all the time. Gilbert is sweating while he is talking with Muku alone. They are wearing Zero + Maria Cornejo.

George came back and finally Gilbert becomes comfortable again. “I am so glad you are here! I am too shy without you. I don’t know what to do.” Gilbert said.

They are so funny. When they are at a dance party they show them a new performance called Bending It. They are dancing but it looks like they just bend the knee. “ Are you guys dancing? ” Tama asked. “ We are bending it!” they said. Fashionista Cat and Tama are wearing Gucci.

They are at Fashionista Cat’s apartment when all of a sudden they stand up and sing a song.“ This is also part of our performance.” They said. That song was not an impressing song, they just made it up as they sang. “ When it’s raining outside, I feel sleepy…. ”Fashionista Cat and Tama are wearing Douglas Hannant.

Their apartment was really crazy. Their portraits were all over the place. They love themselves so much. “ How did you become an artist?” Tama asked. “ We never became artists. We were born artists.” They said. That is really great life. Fashionista Cat and Tama are wearing Damir Doma.

“If someone is thinking your life is art what will you do? ” Fashionista Cat asked. “ They become more careful about what they are doing. I am really conscious about my movement.” Tama said. It looks funny when they moved like a slow motion graphic. “ I feel like a I am doing meditation.” Phoo said. They enjoyed being art objects.“ Aren’t you tired of always performing?” Fashionista Cat asked them. “No, we enjoy what we are doing.” they said. They have never shown what they are working on. When they are outside they are constantly performing. Fashionista Cat,Tama and Phoo are wearing Yves Saint Laurent.

Now we understand who Gilbert and George are. “ I think they are art. Not just their performing and not just their photos.” Tama said. Yes, art is not just objects. Art is the message of what they want to say. Good to know that! “ What do they want to say anyway?” Phoo asked. “ It is very hard to decode but I think that their message is who they are. ” Fashionista Cat said. “ That’s it? ” Tama said. “ Yes, that’s all they want to say. No one can be them and they don’t want to be anybody else either.”
