[ Tim Noble & Sue Webster ]

"To the untrue man, the whole universe is false, --it is impalpable, --it shrinks to nothing within his grasp. And he himself, insofar as he shows himself in a false light, becomes a shadow, or, indeed, ceases to exist." -{---NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE (b Salem MASSA- CHUSETTS, 1804-1864), from "The Scarlet Letter"}

Delight in Light


Real Life is Rubbish, 2002 British-born and -based artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster skilfully skirt the boundaries between beauty and the shadowier aspects of humanity, playing with our perceptions as well as our notions of taste. Many of their most notable pieces are made from piles of rubbish, with light projected against them to create a shadow image entirely different to that seen when looking directly at the deliberately disguised pile.
