I NU RIAN MUSEUM Glasgow
This exhibition of work by Boyd Webb is, by all accounts, a depressineg resounding victory of matter over mind. Slick, large-scale cibachrome photographs with wonderfully esoteric titles such as Palliasse - that’s straw filled mattresses to you and me - Miasma and Ampoule, colourfully herald what is little more than a series of ponderous visual articulations of matters sexual. A bit like ‘Everything you always wanted to know about sex but were too afraid to ask’ without the humour.
This is the first major showing of the artist’s work in Scotland and a woefully wasted opportunity it is too. This is due mainly to the fact that Webb’s sexual ponderings are sadly under endowed in the ideas department. Sob, a tired representation or an ejaculating penis protruding through a glory-holed wall of anaglypta, and Stool, two aesthetically arranged piasticine turds are admittedly the more obviously crass examples. Elsewhere, however, other examples such as Entomb and Parole where ‘ravening vulvas compete with slithering spermatozoa’ hardly have the last word in visual nuance.
0n the whole, the point seems to have gone sadly amiss somewhere along the line, if indeed it existed in the first place. Instead we are left with images which are not so much
‘potent symbols of biological determinisrn’, as prettlrled prurience. it seems increasingly the case that empty vessels are given carte blanche
to make all the noise in the world as long as they are decorated in gloriously crowd pleasing Technicolor and are swathed in precioust hyperbolic text which urges us to ‘Think of Boyd Webb as Bad, or Bod, using his camera . . .’ (which not only assumes the existence of God but also thathe carrlesacatnera-serelya metaphysical first). We are also told that ‘Around 1985, Webb moved into outer space.’ in light of this, it is perhaps churiish to continue. (Caroline Ednie)
Boyd Webb is at the CCA trout Fri 17 Jun-16 Jul.
