THE SUN WILL SHINE BRIGHTLY ON YOUR ROTTING CORPSE WHILST YOUR BONES GLIMMER IN THE MOONLIGHT

ProjectB is proud to present The sun will shine brightly on your rotting corpse whilst your bones glimmer in the moonlight, a solo show by Jake and Dinos Chapman.

The British contemporary artists known as The Chapman Brothers have been collaborating since 1992, the year they graduated from the Royal College of Art.

The Chapman brothers work in versatile mediums - drawing, etching, painting, sculpture and life-size installation. Through their approach to all artistic mediums with high art references they invite the spectator into a world of torture, violence, horror, sex and genetics. By making you a party to this voyeurism you are transfixed by a world that mocks any hint of sentimentality, and teaches you that, yes, you can aestheticise horror.

For the show in Milan they will present UNHAPPY FEET.

A three-dimensional installation that shakes the rules that logically drive our childish memory. They have featured a parallel universe where the penguins are the Naziís and the cuddly polar bears the victims; a unique piece intended as an allegory of suffering and evil. Imagine the world has frozen over: in this glacial environment only animals survive. Penguins must leave the South Pole to travel across the globe where they devour everything they come across. Their final destination is the North Pole, where they brutally attack whales, walruses and polar bears.
Other works on show in Milan include skull panels, etchings, sculptures and a Ronald McDonald carpet. Works range from 1997, the year of the Sensation exhibition in London when they presented their famous three-dimensional plastic models of people, such as Great Deeds Against the Dead, shown along with Zygotic Acceleration, Biogenetic, De-Sublimated Libidinal Model to today.
