25 October 2014 – 7 January 2015
Jake & Dinos Chapman: ‘In the Realm of the Unmentionable’ – an exhibition of new work, crowd-funded by the Art Fund’s ‘Art Happens’ project.
The exhibition features new work created using artworks sourced from antique and junk shops in and around Hastings. These have then been ‘fixed’ by the Chapman brothers. As Jake Chapman explained:
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…. I think that Hastings will be interesting as a possible resource for source material because there’s lots of stuff that might have a certain melancholic aesthetic to it which we can mess around with.
