National Icons Gilbert & George present...

The Urethra Postcards Pictures

The series comprises of 564 pictures, 155 pictures are on display at Mason's Yard.

The work wryly celebrates Englishness in the form of post cards of London attractions and its titillations. Could this be the pleasure principal?

United in their composition, 'Urethra Postcard Pictures' constitutes 13 cloned postcards set against a geometric take on a urethra. Each of the postcards, in trademark patriotic form, feature the Union Jack alongside an advert for sexual services.

Meeting Gilbert & George Pandemonia commented that it was a very large show. The Duo nodded in agreement.

For every ones clarification Gilbert is the smaller one and George is the taller one.
