Twins Search

Twins! The National Gallery of Canada needs You(!) for a Damien Hirst installation in its big summer Pop Art show. You can be the art! And you don't even have to try! If you are a twin, sign up here!

I wish I was a twin so bad.

Sadly, they are only looking for IDENTICAL twins. Despite what well meaning strangers may think, C&G are NOT identical.

Oh, and they would say that twin-life isn't exactly all it's cracked up to be.

True: they must be identical. I don't think C&G would be able to stay in the required place long enough to be the art. They'd be on the move!

C&G look completely different anyway, apart from being a boy and a girl.

I would only want a twin in order to be in this art. Otherwise, I'd probably dislike my twin.

The best comment I ever got was, "So, she's taller than him, so that means they aren't identical." Yep, that's WHY THEY AREN'T IDENTICAL. Sheesh.
