My Place: Jake Chapman

Inside the Cotswolds home and studio of the art world enfant terrible

Known for his offbeat artworks made alone and collaboratively with brother Dinos Chapman, British art rebel Jake Chapman has made a name for himself for his provocative works that play on subjects of the bizarre, grotesque or macabre. His and Dinos Chapman’s work often features groups of life-sized, life-like models in strange scenarios, and their 2003 Turner Prize entry debuted a bronze statue showing two sex dolls in the ’69 position.

For the latest episode of My Place, the British artist invites director Barbara Anastacio into his home in the idyllic Cotswolds, England, where he talks about art, life and the city-country disconnect.
