'Come and See' at the Serpentine's new Sackler Gallery is Jake & Dinos Chapman's first solo museum exhibition in London. Featuring many new works the exhibition will demonstrate the multifaceted nature of the artists' practice and explore their 'provocative and deliberately confrontational work', which approaches controversial subjects with irreverence and dark humour.
Julia Peyton-Jones, director, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, co-director, at Serpentine Galleries said, 'Since their surreal and sometimes nightmarish imagery took up residency in our collective subconscious in the early 1990s, Jake & Dinos have continued to prod, provoke and entertain. Whether subverting artists’ original works – including their own – twisting historic narratives or peeling back the surface of consumer-driven culture to reveal the horror and humour that lies beneath, the Chapmans compel us to confront the nagging fears that lie at the dark heart of the Western psyche. Their use of film, music and literature as well as painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture anticipated the multi-disciplinary approach of the 89plus generation for whom they are heroes and trailblazers. We are thrilled that they are exhibiting at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery this winter.'
