Tim Noble and Sue Webster, 'Portraits from the Bottom Up', Limited Edition


‘If 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

Continuing their investigative journey into self-portraiture, Tim Noble and Sue Webster have produced ‘Portraits from the Bottom Up’, bronze sculptures in a limited edition of 10. These sculptures are cast from the artists’ nipples and arseholes, which are wall mounted, to challenge the brain by reflecting the positioning of the eyes and mouth back at the viewer.
