Tim Noble & Sue Webster - Portraits from the Bottom Up
Continuing to explore their investigation into self-portraiture Tim Noble & Sue Webster have produced work for Portraits from the Bottom Up including an edition of ten bronze works and a series of unique monoprints.
In the series of unique prints, the artists use their own bodies as human printing machines, printing directly onto Somerset Velvet 300gsm paper. The sculptures are cast bronzes of the artists nipples and arseholes, wall mounted, to challenge the brain by reflecting the positioning of the eyes and mouth.
âIf they say that necessity is the mother of invention, then the original concept for this obscene series of body part prints was born from just that. During a residency on one of the most beautifully passive and colourful of the Caribbean Islands we found ourselves banished in order to create. Unfortunately this idyll rendered us impotent and we retracted back into our darkened room and turned to our bodies for inspiration.' Sue Webster.
