After Artwork's Fiery Demise, a New and Impenitent 'Hell'

'It's all going a bit Wallace and Gromit'

Quote
Jake Chapman tells me, straight-faced, about the plan he and his brother Dinos have to paint the portraits of willing customers at this year's Frieze: "The project is a site-specific, performance-based, body-related art." The Chapmans have set up a shabbily decorated little room as a studio at the fair, where their clients will sit for a genuine portrait in oils, on canvas, by the famous British artists. I think of a sad postwar bohemia, earnestness and lost values. Jake might even paint in his pyjamas, he tells me, because artists like to feel comfortable when they work.

I do not feel comfortable. I am the guinea pig, the patsy, the brothers' first punter, sitting for my portrait in their studio.

Two bad boys beat me up, ma


There's a schoolboy bully quality about the Chapmans' work. Clean that wall at once, lads!

It really annoys me that this exhibition is at Tate Liverpool and not at Tate Modern, but I guess people in Liverpool need their bit of "bad art" too. I've seen most of the works featured in Bregenz anno 2003 already, so I guess I shouldn't complain. But still..  Rolling Eyes

Awwww... it really looks like the English feuilleton still can't get enough shock value from the Chapman brothers:

The Guardian asks itself: "What's more disturbing than the Chapmans' art?"

Answer: The number of toddlers at their Tate Liverpool retrospective

Oh, come on! I grew up with Hieronymus Bosch too. Art simply can't be bizarre, macabre and disgusting enough when you're a toddler. Wink

Cardboard cutouts mark new low for Chapman brothers

Quote
Jake and Dinos Chapman are pushing creative boundaries again with a new exhibition of painted sculptures made of cardboard. According to Nick Hackworth, owner of the gallery Paradise Row, where the show opens next month, the brothers aim to "test people's sensibilities. By using impoverished materials such as cardboard and papier mache, they're seeing how far and how low they can go."
Last month, the Chapmans admitted they set the bar deliberately low: "We essentially see ourselves as being similar in merit to Vanessa Mae - loads of talent but no real taste."

The shock of the two Chapmans

Ever since defacing their first Goya etching, Jake and Dinos have been among the most original of artists. As a new work is unveiled, Louise Jury pays tribute to a most singular duo

Really looking forward to the new Hell.  I really regret not being able to have seen the last one in person.
