UNITED KINGDOM---A sculpture by Jake and Dinos Chapman, featuring a man hanging upside down, naked and bleeding, has been installed in Sheffield Cathedral as part of "Going Public," a city wide exhibition opening today in which five venues are exhibiting works from the collections of five reputed private collectors from the UK, Italy, Germany, and France. The large piece by the still controversial Chapman brothers, entitled "Cyber Iconic Man" (1996), has been installed in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit of the Cathedral. [link]
