PIERRE & GILLES






Pierre & Gilles are the masters of kitsch. I had the pleasure to visit one of their exhibitions in Paris in the late nineties. The last picture here, of Sylvie Vartan, was displayed at that time, and the frame is enormous. The title is Ice Lady, and it is a hand-painted photo mounted on aluminum. It was made in 1994 and I think it´s owned by François Pinault. I remember the fram was made of plastic and looked like ice.
