Gilbert and George: the Odd Couple

Gilbert and George have no friends, no kitchen, and dress only in tweed. On the eve of their strangest show yet, the 'living sculptures' talk frankly about art, fashion and faith.

Read the full article in the Guardian and watch a videohere.

George, raised a Methodist, is more sarcastic: "We think religion would be fine if it came under the same legal umbrella as ourselves. They should be the same as a manufacturer of marmalade. You're not allowed to make false claims about your ­marmalade, are you?" He adds: "We think the Pope should be dragged to the Hague in the same way Milosevic was: he's killed more people, anyway."
