February 25, 2000 — March 25, 2000
76 Grand Street, New York

Heaps of garbage, tacky fairground lights, and ghostlike shadows were the principal elements of Tim Noble and Sue Webster's exhibition I (HEART) YOU. Like alchemists or magicians, Noble and Webster make something extraordinary out of the most humble materials. They create romantic images of hope out of darkness and debris.
Upon entering the gallery, the visitor found the floor strewn with spotlit mounds of domestic garbage. Looking up onto the walls, one was astounded to see astonishingly realistic silhouette portraits of the artists created by the shadows of the garbage piles. Images of love appeared miraculously from the heaps of garbage created by what the artists consumed while they were making them. Tim Noble and Sue Webster, who work as a team, are among the most celebrated of their generation of British artists. I (HEART) YOU was their first exhibition in New York.
