About the work
A fully-illustrated Limited Edition publication to accompany Sarah Lucas' first major solo show in London 'SITUATION Absolute Beach Man Rubble,' on show at the Whitechapel Gallery from 2 October - 15 December 2013. The exhibition will gather over two decades of sculpture, installation and photography to explore Lucas' remarkable career. This new publication will provide an important and timely survey of her work.
This two-volume catalogue will be the first substantial publication to offer an overview of Lucas' work from 1990 to today, and to focus on her approach to exhibition making, installation and her concern with the architectural environment in which her work is placed. The first volume features 28 short scholarly texts, each focused on a single work by the artist, along with installation photographs of the Whitechapel Gallery exhibition. The second volume comprises a foreword by the exhibition's curator, Iwona Blazwick, an illustrated chronology and documentation of the yearlong SITUATION series accompanied by a personal account of the project by the artist.
This special Limited Edition version of the catalogue features a cover showing a gold leaf debossed image of the work Patrick More (2013), taken from her new series of bronze NUDs.
About the artist
One of the leading figures in an outstanding generation of young British artists who emerged during the 1990s, Sarah Lucas has exhibited extensively both in the UK and internationally. Since the late 1980s, Lucas has created sculptures and installations that focus on the body. Drawing upon everyday materials such as cigarettes, tights, furniture and vegetables, she probes representations of gender, sexuality and national identity. In recent years Lucas has combined fragments of the body with organic materials, further addressing universal concerns of nature and mortality.
