Constructed principally from discarded wood, the artists describe these sculptures as ‘street compositions’.

tim noble & sue webster blaine southern gallery, london october 10th 2012 – november 24th 2012. nihilistic optimistic is the UK’s tim noble & sue webster’s first major solo exhibition at blaine southern gallery in london since 2006. featuring six large-scale works, the show builds upon the artists’ sustained investigation into self-portraiture, further deconstructing the relationship between materiality and form which has been so intrinsic to their practice. each work appears abstracted or even unfinished as the debris of the artists’ studio – gathered sawdust, wood shavings and tools – lie scattered around the sculptures. a sense of urban chaos is implicit within the construction of the surrounding gallery environment; this is not an isolated white cube space, but one which remains connected to the studio and the streets – to the source of.

Photograph by Peter Mallet. For instance, in 'Nasty Pieces of Work', Webster stands nonchalantly next to a barely-formed scarecrow/droid that reads as an undoing of Noble, while 'The Individual' beams a fractured, Medusa-headed version of Webster on to the wall. And just as the silhouettes start to become really interesting when the bodies disintegrate, the sculptures attain newfound autonomy when, instead of reading as a list of nameable detritus – claw hammer, plug, paint roller – they hover at the edge of description – off-cut, shard, er, no idea.

Via their artist statment: Tim Noble and Sue Webster take ordinary things including rubbish, to make assemblages and then point light to create projected shadows which show a great likeness to something identifiable including self-portraits. The art of projection is emblematic of transformative art. The process of transformation, from discarded waste, scrap metal or even taxidermy creatures to a recognizable image, echoes the idea of ‘perceptual psychology’ a form of evaluation used for psychological patients

Tim Noble/Sue Webster: Nihilistic Optimistic (picture by Peter Mallet). Work, Art. Amazing silhouette sculptures by Tim Noble and Sue Webster on show in London. Words by Rob Alderson, Tuesday 16 October 2012. For their new show at London’s Blain Southern Gallery, Tim Noble and Sue Webster have continued their exploration of portraiture by creating these extraordinarily detailed silhouette pieces using old wool and broken tools. The actual sculptures couldn’t be much less prepossessing, scattered with sawdust and other debris, but thanks to the light they become compelling, unnerving and unexpectedly beautiful. Nihilistic Optimistic runs until November 24. Tim Noble/Sue Webster: Nihilistic Optimistic (picture by Peter Mallet). Tim Noble/Sue Webster: Nihilistic Optimistic (picture by Peter Mallet)

A sustained investigation into self-portraiture, Nihilistic Optimistic further deconstructs the relationship between materiality and form which has been so intrinsic to the practice of Tim Noble and Sue Webster. Constructed principally from discarded wood and other materials, the artists describe the sculptures as ‘street compositions’. A sense of urban chaos is implicit within the construction of the surrounding gallery environment; this is not an isolated white cube space, but one which remains connected to the studio and the streets – to the source of these artworks. The publication includes photographs of the works in the exhibition, as well as a contribution from Gustav Metzger, an essay by Jon Savage and an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist and Tim Noble & Sue Webster.
