Jake Chapman was born in Cheltenham in 1966. He is a contemporary artist who makes iconoclastic sculpture, prints, films (such as 'Sacrificial Mutilation in Modern Art,' 'Good Art for Bad People,' 'The Organ Grinder's Monkey,' 'The Marriage of Reason and Squalor,' 'Accelerate or Die!'), writing and installations that examine, with searing wit and energy, contemporary politics, religion, and morality… apocalyptic snapshots… emulating aspects of human behaviour with a trademark subversive wit… the conflation of the exotic fetish and the cheap fast-food giveaway… imperialism and globalisation… erotomanic sculpture. He has exhibited at Brandts Museum Odense… Serpentine Gallery… Pinchuk Art Centre, Kiev… The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg… Museo Pino Pascali, Polignano a Mare… Hastings Museum, UK… Kestner Gesellschaft Hannover… Tate Britain, London… Tate Liverpool… Kunsthaus Bregenz… Museum Kunst Palast, Düsseldorf… Modern Art Oxford… PS Contemporary Art Center, New York… Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn… National Center of Contemporary Art, Moscow… Kunstverein Hamburg… British Museum, London… Palais des Beaux Arts de Lille… Haus der Kunst, Munich ICA, London… Royal Academy of Arts, London… Museum of Contemporary Art KIASMA Helsinki… but lost the Turner Prize to Grayson Perry, Tate Britain in 2003.
