If you liked the show, you will probably love the ebook. The exhibition was as popular here, as it was at the Serpentine Galleries in London last year. The Chapman brothers are deliciously irreverent, and their art is infused with dark humour, a skewering vision of humanity through the use of everything from sculpture and painting to film and literature. The ‘notorious contemporary art duo’ will also be showing in the town they grew up in, at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, UK. Jake and Dinos Chapman: In the Realm of the Unmentionable, is billed as a major new exhibition, featuring previously unseen works as well as pieces made exclusively for the show. Further exploring their reworking of Goya etchings and Victorian paintings in their Family Portrait series, the brothers sought artworks from antique and junk shops in Hastings, which then were ‘fixed’ for the exhibition.

In the gallery press release, Jake Chapman says: “Working on someone else’s work optimises the idea that making art is a destructive rather than a creative act, which is pretty much what we are about...”
Hmm.
