Os Gemeos: The flowers in this garden were planted by my Grandparents

Os Gemeos, our favorite identical Brazilian twin artists Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, have many reasons to be excited about their new show, “The flowers in this garden were planted by my Grandparents.” First of all it's the duo's first solo museum show. Also, their good friend and mentor Barry McGee has previously showed at the Museum Het Domein.

The twins pulled off a feat, finishing a large sculpture despite a hold up in customs. And Siba Veloso, one of Os Gemeos' favorite musicians (for whom they designed a stage set for his live recording), played at the opening. (Click images for detail and see more after the jump.)

To top it all off, after their opening, most of the Pandolfo family headed to Latvia to the opening of the Kaunas Biennial Textile 07 show which included a piece designed by Os Gemeos and cross stitched by their Mom, Margarida, whose father was from Latvia. It's a family affair.
