Sue Webster Curates

Tim Noble and Sue Webster

Sue Webster co-curates two nights of live music and performances, celebrating the best of the underground scene in East London. Inside Outside Underground events include Tim Noble and Sue Webster’s collaboration with Japanese alt-rockers Bo Ningen. There will be a special performance by the band on 15th October alongside a screening of Noble and Webster’s HAIR animation which was inspired by the band. First conceived for the Venice Biennale in 2011, HAIR was recently re-animated and presented as part of Yoko Ono’s Meltdown Festival, 2013

Speaking of the collaboration, Sue Webster says “I first saw Bo Ningen by accident at the Shoreditch 1-2-3-4 festival back in 2010. I had never seen anything like it – four Japanese gentlemen with hair down to their knees who played guitars with their teeth, naturally I was mesmerised.”

“After interviewing them for the music paper BEAT, I spent the next few weeks plucking long black hairs from the back of my sofa...this induced Tim and I to make ‘hair portraits’ of each member of the band, which metamorphised itself perfectly into the idea of creating an animation made entirely from their HAIR”.
