JAKE & DINOS CHAPMAN - SHITROSPECTIVE
20 Nov 2009 to 16 Jan 2010


Contemporary Fine Arts is pleased to announce “Shitrospective”, the first solo exhibition by
Jake & Dinos Chapman at the gallery Am Kupfergraben 10.

In their recent work Jake & Dinos Chapman replicate the most important sculptures, installations and occurrences from their joint career - in miniature format in cardboard and poster paint. From “Fuckfaces” to “Sex”, from “Uebermensch” to “Little Death Machines” they subsequently deliver the primarily not existing models of their main works. In cardboard they also reconstruct the warehouse fire of the shipping company Momart, in which the first version of their installation “Hell” was destroyed. Thus the Chapmans execute a double somersault in rebuilding inexistent models of former realised sculptures. “Shitrospective” pre-empts the Museum retrospective in a format reflective of the crisis and production costs.

Interestingly, it becomes apparent to the observer through the sketch-like laconic execution, the level of iconic quality the most important works by the Chapmans have meanwhile achieved. Here the absence of the demand for perfection lends the sculptures a particular charm.

Over the last few years Jake & Dinos Chapman have had solo exhibitions in important institutions – Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, Kunsthaus Bregenz and CAC Malaga to name but a few. The Chapman brothers live and work in London.
