Scapegoating – Gilbert & George

Scapegoating is currently at the White Cube in Bermondsey Street, exhibiting sixty new works by Gilbert and George. The pictures feature the sights, mood and multi-cultural world that is Brick lane and the parts of the East End where they live and work.

Sinister bomb shaped canisters dominate the work. These are discarded containers of nitrous oxide or “hippy crack” used to create hallucinations by local hipsters on a night out.
