Jake and Dinos Chapman (commonly referred to as the Chapman Brothers) have been working and exhibiting collaboratively since 1991. Their work, which features a mixture of sculpture, prints and installation is intentionally provocative whilst being layered with a dark intelligent humour that is core to their practice. Hell Hole (1999) is characteristic of their confrontational style featuring a litany of dismembered body parts that compel the viewer to confront our own perceptions of acceptability and the Western notions of the afterlife and ‘hell’.

Their selected solo exhibitions include The Disasters of Everyday Life, Blain|Southern, London, UK, 2017; To Live and Think like Pigs, UTA Artist Space, CA, USA, 2017 and The Nature of Particles, Magasin III, Stockholm, Sweden, 2016.
