Exquisitely disturbing, perhaps more so than the life-size shop mannequin versions, Tinkerbellend has been lovingly crafted to the Chapmans' usual high degree of perverse detail. Moulded from polypropylene, each doll is first lacquer sprayed then painstakingly hand-painted. The Nike shoes are cast and painted separately before assembly, while the hand-made wigs have specially styled and produced by a little old lady working for a small doll making company in Tyne-and-Wear. The glass dome and oak base is included with your purchase. Jake and Dinos Chapman have been working together since 1992 - a collaboration they describe as "structured through antagonism and beauty". Their first significant presentation of work was a diorama of miniature three-dimensional representations of Goya's Disasters of War, mostly fabricated in Jake's living room over a period of several months.
Jake & Dinos Chapman make iconoclastic sculpture, prints and installations that examine, with searing wit and energy, contemporary politics, religion and morality. They interrogate what we value as art, questioning the widely held view that the purpose of art is to be morally redemptive or socially edifying. They ask us to consider what we see as good or bad art - whether "bad" art really is made by or for bad people - and to probe the assumptions that underlie established aesthetic criteria. They frequently employ subversive strategies through which they question the role of the artist and the complicity of the viewingÂ audience.
