This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Meeting as art students in the 1980s at Nottingham Trent University in Nottingham, England, Tim Noble, born in Stroud, and Sue Webster, born in Leicester, have been collaborating in conceptual, assemblage artwork ever since.  They live in Shoreditch of East London and are part of the group of avant-garde, post Young British Artist group, collected by Charles Saatchi and exhibited in the recent opening of his London Gallery in County Hall.  Some of their assemblage pieces are created from found objects and rubbish from London streets.

Characteristic of their work is Black Narcissus, 2006, which casts pictorial shadows, and another, Scarlett, exhibited in spring, 2008 at the Sigmund Freud Museum in Hampstead in London, is sexually/'Freudian' oriented with "a motorized, table-top jumble of broken doll parts, electric motors and wiring, along with various containers of unappetizing fluids.  When this Rube Goldberg manifestation of the unconscious is switched on, a baby seems to drink it own urine, something excremental goes in and out of a doll's asshole, and dire deeds appear to be visited upon dismembered birds." (Plagens 184)  Electric Fountain, installed in 2008 at Rockefeller Center in New York City on a corner above the skating rink, is 35 feet high.  It "mimics the arcing sprays of a clasic fountain, and some blush neon tubing and zillions of programmed lightbulbs furnish the approximation of water in motion.  . . .It's big, clever and cheery, with a kind of friendly, G-rated carny vibe emanating from its unavoidable tinniness." (Plagen 210)
