There are also new works created specifically for this exhibition.

The brothers, who attended William Park school in Hastings, are particularly concerned with consumer culture, mortality, morality, religion and horror.

They continue to be influenced by the work of Francisco Goya (1746 - 1828) and George Bataille (1897 - 1962), Surrealism, philosophy, psychology, and the holocaust.

In an exceptional body of work that encompasses a vast range of art forms and media, Jake and Dinos engage with fundamental questions about what it is to be human.

This exhibition has been crowdfunded through the Art Fund’s ‘Art Happens’ project.

It runs until January 7.
