Jake & Dinos Chapman – Fucking Hell

The_Sum_of_vrll_Evil

Iakovos “Jake” Chapman (born 1966) and Konstantinos “Dinos” Chapman (born 1962) are English visual artists, often known as the Chapman Brothers. Arguably their most ambitious work was ‘Hell’ (1999), an immense tabletop tableau, peopled with over 30,000 remodelled, 2-inch-high figures, many in Nazi uniform and performing egregious acts of cruelty. The work combined historical, religious and mythic narratives to present an apocalyptic snapshot of the twentieth-century. Tragically this work was destroyed in the MOMART fire in 2004 and the Chapmans rebuked by saying they would make another, more ambitious in scale and detail – the result of which was ‘Fucking Hell’ (2008).
