Les Artistes

"Red" september - december 2012

Born in 1962 (Dinos) and in 1966 (Jake) in England. Live and work in London.

Visual artists and brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman began their artistic collaboration in 1990. Since then, they have been creating iconoclastic sculptures, paintings, prints and installations that examine contemporary politics, religion and morality. Their work is described as existing between what repulses and what attracts the viewer. According to curator and museum director, Christoph Gruneneberg, what is really disturbing in the Chapman’s creations is their underlying psychological meanings – the attacks on the whole body, the blurring of gender lines, the insinuation of sadism and moral offense. Jake and Dinos also create artworks separately.
