For the latest installment in NOWNESS‘s My Place series, controversial British artist, and one half of the Chapman Brothers, Jake Chapman offers a look inside his idyllic house in the English countryside. The video sees Chapman give a tour of his house and studio, as well as talking about the art collection on his walls and the makeshift motocross track outside.
During the tour, Chapman also touches on how moving from London to the countryside could have changed his art, saying “it was strange, actually, the transition from working in London to working here. There was definitely a certain anxiety about thinking that the quality of every day life, it being so sort of idyllic, that it might somehow affect the work. The work might suddenly edge toward being positive.”
