Jake and Dinos Chapman go rock’n’roll

30 March 2009 by Lisa

Ah what can you say to describe the amazing PJ Harvey? Rock star. Legend. Fan of Nick Cave. Player of Gibson Firebird guitars. The most glamorous person to come from Dorset…and now a lover of bouncy castles! Let me explain. 

PJ Harvey has been recording with her long-time collaborator John Parish and the first single from their forthcoming album will be out on 13 April. The video for this single, ‘Black Hearted Love’, has been made by British artists Jake and Dinos Chapman who we were pleased to have on the jury for the recent John Moores 25 Contemporary Painting Prize at the Walker Art Gallery.

The video is pretty cool I think, spooky yet graceful is what I’d say. Here’s what the Chapman brothers said about it: “We decided ‘Black Hearted Love’ deserved something haunting and enigmatic – yet brazen and colourful. Hence, a collision between an ominous forest and a garish bouncy castle seemed entirely appropriate…” (Quote from NME.com)

Have a look and see what you think…
