Tim Noble and Sue Webster display an anti-conformist punk attitude, fusing high and low art to produce ironically seductive works Forever is exceptional as it’s one of the earliest Light Sculptures in the artists’ body of work.
Originally commissioned in 1996 by a public arts organisation, it was installed on top of a bus shelter in London’s Tottenham Court Road, flashing brightly to illuminate the grey urban surroundings. Constructed using carnival lights, the bold form of the word Forever signifies advertising’s subliminal communicative power, whereas conceptually, the sculpture plays with notions of everlasting love. In 2002, it was purchased for $150,000 at auction by a private collector.
Working with the artists, Sedition brings this dazzling sculpture to life in a new digital format.
