HINTERGRUND - Jake Chapman
10 September – 8 October 2022
'It seems to me that all there is left to do is to colour-in unfinished art, a kind of revisionist sprucing up, so that all of the crimes of the past are rendered innocent, Disneyesque even…’ - Jake Chapman, 2022.
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.

We have tracked Grim down!
We can assess how badly damaged he is and give him a public space so the townsfolk can see the amount of work that needs to be done.
He can once again become the emblematic figurehead, and a well-loved work of art.
This is a great symbol of the town, and needs to be re-kindled and nurtured!
