“Throughout their careers, they have played with the idea of how humans perceive abstract images and define them with meaning,” states their official biography. “They have created a remarkable group of anti-monuments in their fourteen-year career, mixing the strategies of modern sculpture and the attitude of pink to make art from anti-art.
The result is surprising and powerful, as it redefines how abstract forms can transform into figurative ones.”
Now enjoying international recognition, Tim and Sue’s work has been exhibited at Rockefeller Plaza and P.S.1/MoMA, as well as remains as part of the permanent collections of Artis-François Pinault (France), the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), the Saatchi Collection (London), and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York).
It’s hard to even begin figuring out how Tim Noble and Sue Webster come up with the work they do. But without a doubt, the artistic duo know how to make garbage look good. Ever since their first solo show in London, entitled British Rubbish, in 1996, Tim and Sue have managed to take ordinary things, usually discarded objects and scraps, and transform them into recognizable images through the use of projected shadows.
