Chapman, Jake and Dinos, Zygotic Acceleration, Biogenetic, De-Sublimated Libidinal Model, 1995

A discomfiting representation of the sexualization of children, possibly registering either sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, or society’s fears about these crimes. Also, where the non-human and the human come to occupy the same unsettling place.Chapman brothers Zygotic acceleration biogenetic de-sublimated libidi

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Wow, that is perhaps the most disconcerting/uncomfortable (yet horrifically effective in its message) pieces of art I have ever seen…

    • kinneret says:

      Yes, I may have to take it down if it causes too much consternation. It was really one of the only work of art from the Saatchi collection exhibit (modern British artists) that was meaningful and worth looking at. This is a more extreme visceral version of some nightmarish images by Henry Darger.

      • Joachim Boaz says:

        If it is causing consternation it is causing good consternation — the work’s message is supposed to be disconcerting. It is supposed to make us (uncomfortably) aware of some persistent issues which must be wiped out.

      • kinneret says:

        It would seem unlikely that child abuse will ever be eradicated because the crimes are committed outside of the public view. The more intimate the crimes, the more closed off from public prosecution.

    If anyone were to study this work as one would look at fine art, that person himself should be examined.

  3. kinneret says:

    It isn’t fine art. It’s modern 20th century “art.”
