The HUMAN BONDAGE series explore Gilbert and George's experiences of squalor and degradation, with images arranged in the shape of a reverse swastika or fylfot. The artists were using this symbol to make a statement about inner destruction. In the DARK SHADOW pictures which followed, clearly set inside their home in Fournier Street, disorienting double-exposures and blood-like spatters continue the descent into darkness and depression and their relationship with alcohol and it's effects.
