Les Artistes

"La Gioia" october - december 2014 

Born in 1962 in England. Lives and works in London.

Sarah Lucas’ body of work encompasses sculpture, installation, collage, and photograph, all noticeable in her defiant humour. She became well known for her highly provocative works, including crude genital punning and confrontational self-portraits. The artist uses a heterogeneous range of everyday materials to create pieces focused on the representation of the human body. Drawing on art historical references, cultural stereotypes and the British tabloid culture, Lucas challenges our conception of gender, sexuality and identity.
