BIOGRAPHY

The artist-duo create sculptural artworks that challenge the eye by fusing opposites. What appears to be a nightmarish pile-up of road kill turns out to be a self-portrait of shadows projected onto the gallery wall; scrap metal metamorphoses into copulating rats; a heap of trash transforms into silhouettes of ‘Tim and Sue’ having a drink and smoke, apparently content with the work they have made and in which they take star billing. The sculptures consist of the material, tangible rejects of modern society in combination with ethereal light – they become visible through the combination of two total contraries. 

The concept of these shadow sculptures is applied in reverse to their light sculptures: constructions out of computer sequenced light-bulbs that reference iconic pop culture by creating images reminiscent of cliché kitsch tattoos and the tinsel-town arcadia of working-class sea-side Britain. 

The artists visually challenge the relationship between the spectacular, the serious, and the entertaining and echo concepts of perceptual psychology in their transformative art. What is considered low culture or a wasteful artifact reveals itself as an entirely different object against what the observer would expect and associate. Our social and economically conditioned information-processing short cuts, which we have learned to apply since childhood, become confused. 

The play of shadow and light simultaneously recalls one of the oldest philosophical critiques: Plato’s Cave Allegory: that it is the artist’s responsibility to create objects that can transcend terrestrial life by giving us a glimpse of the metaphysical. Art can exceed the gloomy world in which we live and show us the beauty of what lies beyond – the magnificence of all those things that throw the lesser shadows onto the cave wall that make up our reality. 

Notable is, of course, that Tim Noble and Sue Webster’s ‘originals’ are the literal and metaphorical trash of contemporary culture, and nothing like the divine beauty Plato talks about. It should come as no surprise then that the artist duo cite music – in particular Punk – as one of their great influences when it comes to making their art. Noble: “I think anything that’s a bit of a rocket up the arse, anything that kicks against the routine, against the mundane things that close down your mind, is a refreshing and good thing. Punk did that very successfully. It offered a direct and instant means of producing products or things.”

The artists combine form and anti-form to bring about the unexpected, developing new modes of portraiture and abstract art. Webster: our art is “your worst nightmare of what art can be.” However, there is a system behind the consistently confusing or contradictory aesthetic – between what Noble calls “consistently inconsistent”: it is a means to critique what Tim Noble and Sue Webster consider the toxic influences of our contemporary consumer culture and its narcissistic obsessions. The two artists seem like successful alchemists: they metaphorically turn base metal into gold, thereby creating anti-monuments to our every-day reality.

“On one level, Noble and Webster's work is infused with the shock dynamic that has coursed through much of 20th century Modern Art - in recent times most obviously from Punk through to the YBA's et al. There’s always a desire to throw the viewer off, to test the limits. This, I suspect, is basic to their personalities, but as one-time outsiders who have been accepted by the art world - to some degree - it's also a necessary reflex action to keep things fluid, interesting, unpredictable.” Savage, Jon, Adventures in the Fifth Dimension, Nihilistic Optimistic, BLAIN|SOUTHERN London, 2012.

In 2009, Tim Noble and Sue Webster were awarded Honorary Degrees of Doctor of Art at Nottingham Trent University in recognition of their contribution to contemporary British Art and their radical influence on younger generations of artists. In 2007, Tim Noble and Sue Webster were awarded the ARKEN Prize at Arken, Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen, and the show Polymorphous Perverse (Freud Museum, 2006) was nominated for the South Bank Prize.
