International exhibitors and winners of the Turner Prize in 1986, they are noted for their performance work and large photo-pieces. Solo exhibitions include those at the Pompidou Centre, Paris (1981), the Baltimore Museum of Art, (1984) and the Guggenheim (1985) and a major retrospective at Tate Modern (2007).
