Sarah Lucas

Born 1962, London, UK

Lucas makes sculpture, photography and installation. Her works are characterised by confrontational humour, sexual puns and an ironic exploration of Englishness. Much of Lucas’s work is centres on ‘readymade’ objects – whether furniture, tabloid newspapers, tights, toilets or cigarettes – which often suggest male and female sexual forms, disembodied and gesturing limbs, penises, orifices and other corporeal fragments.
