S.C.U.M: Whitechapel

The Post-Punk Band Are Illuminated In a Video Premiere By Tim Noble and Sue Webster

Iconic YBAs Tim Noble and Sue Webster bring their shadowplay to life directing the video for London five-piece S.C.U.M's latest single, “Whitechapel.” Living and working out of their David Adjaye-designed “Dirty House” in Shoreditch, Noble and Webster are lauded for their shadow sculptures––seemingly nondescript piles of rubbish which, when illuminated, transmute into elegant silhouettes of the pair on the wall behind—and affect an anti-art stance in works mixing form and abstraction, male and female, sex and violence, light and shade. For “Whitecapel”, Noble and Webster floodlit S.C.U.M performing their shoegaze pop in a suitably artsy warehouse settling. "It was very interesting to see how the two work together, exchanging ideas," says lead singer Thomas Cohen of the experience. "It felt like being on the set of Screen Tests by Warhol." Named after Valerie Solanas’s feminist manifesto Society for Cutting Up Men, the band are leaving the underground gallery circuit and heading straight for center stage with their debut album Again Into Eyes out in September.
