Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Nihilistic Optimistic, 2012.
s[edition] have announced their latest artists launch – Tim Noble and Sue Webster.
Nihilistic Optimistic references the duo's 2012 exhibition at Blain|Southern in London. A fittingly dualistic title, Nihilistic Optimistic responds to the oppositional forces present within their work. Here, cool flickering neon lights oscillate to illuminate the two words and indicate a paradigm, which is at once constructive and destructive, hopeful and despairing with the alteration of the neon. Light and shadow, figuration and abstraction co-exist in a constant state of tension as the words materialise and then disappear before our eyes.
The work is an edition of 500 starting at £5. Nihilistic Optimistic is also part of s[edition]’s dynamic pricing model. As edition availability decreases the price of the work increases.
