Real Life Is Rubbish, 2002
White Trash (With Gulls), 1998
I'm both disgusted and fascinated by the work of UK-based pair Tim Noble & Sue Webster, who position piles of junk to create their "shadow art." By recycling rubbish in this manner, they press me to think about the amount we as individuals throw away - and what we discard.
It's the piece above that actually makes me feel scared - the artist's now familiar profiles shown decapitated, and created from various mummified animals. It's at once so skillful, and so saddening and repulsive.
