2/2 Jake And Dinos Chapman - What Do Artists Do All Day ?
First broadcast: Nov 2014.
Episode 17/17 Jake and Dinos Chapman have built an international reputation with their provocative, morally unsettling art. From grotesque childlike mannequins with misplaced genitalia to apocalyptic dioramas of decapitated Nazi soldiers, their work has shocked and challenged audiences around the world.
This film follows the brothers as they prepare for a new show in their home town of Hastings, which will include some new works expected to generate controversy. We see them at work in their London studio, overseeing the painstaking, handcrafted work on their 'hellscape' installations, discussing their defaced Goya prints and new pieces including One Day You Will No Longer Be Loved, a series of old portraits they've sourced from junk shops and given a Chapman Brothers makeover.
We discover who does what in this artistic partnership and hear their views on the criticism they have faced. As they return to Hastings to open the exhibition, we find out how they feel to be bringing their art home.
