Eric and ErnieApril 30, 2011
Good artists borrow, great artists steal. Those pair of dandy, robbing bastard Morecambe and Wise lookalikes Gilbert and George, have stolen a march on me by nicking newspaper headline posters from outside newsagents for their next exhibition. Regular readers will know I favour the Manchester Evening News style of “Window Cleaner drowns in own bucket” headline, which to my mind show a Northern sense of the absurd. Anyroadup – the soft southern shites try to distract the newsagents by buy sending ‘Eric’ in to buy a Mars Bar, whilst ‘Ernie’ nicks it (or is it the other way around). I just help myself. Anyway I thought I’d teach the pair a lesson by nicking one of their pieces of art and redistributing it to the masses, so email me if you want a high-resolution piece they produced for the TV programme ‘Imagine’. Be warned it’s 27mb.
