HINTERGRUND – JAKE CHAPMAN – 10 SEPTEMBER – 8 OCTOBER 2022

10th September 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 8th October 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Free
Opening 10 September 2022 at 4pm (to 8pm).  The artist will be here too!
Turntable Gallery is delighted to announce brand new work by one of Britain’s most exciting contemporary artists: Jake Chapman. Marking his debut to Grimsby; HINTERGRUND will showcase Chapman’s unrelenting, uncompromising sense of decadent grotesquerie, humorous malice and flamboyant depravity.
Born in Cheltenham, Jake Chapman now lives in the idyllic surroundings of the Cotswolds. Known for his bizarre, often difficult vistas of chaotic excess, Chapman revels in the glee of provocation. With a practice ranging from sculpture, to printing, from film to the written word. He exists as a force of nature, a whirling fury amongst the creeping conservatism and hyper-saturated apathy of modern Britain.
HINTERGRUND presents Chapman’s working on George Grosz’ body of satirical prints. Each one painstakingly altered to become a deviation upon the deviant, a beautiful corpse, separated by a near century of politically dismantled altruism. The parallels between the populism of the contemporary right and the rise of its Germano-nationalist twin makes this collection even more vital.
Address: Turntable Gallery, 8 Victoria Street, Grimsby, DN31 1DP, UK.
Opening Hours: Wed – Fri : 11:00 – 15:00. Sat: 12:00 – 15:00.
