Sarah Lucas

Tramway

31 January – 16 March 2014

One of the leading figures of the young British artists in the mid-nineties, Sarah Lucas is now a veritable treasure.

Sarah Lucas came to prominence as one of the yBas, in the early nineties, a group of recent Goldsmiths graduates who dominated the British art scene with their raw, edgy art that focused on Duchampian wordplay and conceptual games.

In 1993 Lucas rented a shop with Tracey Emin selling art paraphernalia, and as a result her art has never lost that ephemeral nature. This exhibition features old work re-made, from fried eggs to kebabs together with new commissions.

Don't miss

'Bunny Gets Snookered' was one of Lucas’ early sculptures in which she stuffed tights with newspaper then propped the result on a chair. With legs splayed and body slumped, this strange amorphous form looked like a drunken party-goer on its last legs.
