JAKEANDDINOS are on in Seoul: ‘The Sleep of Reason’


Jake & Dinos Chapman at SongEun ArtSpace, Seoul Korea

El sueño de la razón produce monstruos) is an etching made by the Spanish painter and printmaker Francisco Goya. Created between 1797 and 1799, it’s also the title of the boys first exhibition in Seoul. Over a decade or more their work has earned them the title of “The Brothers Grimm“. It is said that they inhabit a state of a mind “poised between death and rebirth, insanity and discovery, rubble and revelation”. The brothers actually purchased original Goya prints to re-work and their work is focussed on re-imagining and refashioning to make political observations about the contemporary world we live in.

I’ll pop down there tomorrow AM and feedback in due course.
