Sarah Lucas, mit einem Werkverzeichnis von Sadie Coles, Pauline Daly und Sarah Lucas, Zürich/Hamburg/Liverpool 2005/2006, S. 26/27, Abb. und Wvz. S. 128, Abb. Körperteile, skulpturale Fragmente, sexuelle Konnotationen, gestische und semantische Anspielungen mit viel Humor unterlegt, eine gewisse Derbheit und exemplarische Sillosigkeit sind Kennzeichen der Marke Sarah Lucas. In ihren Arbeiten inszeniert sich Lucas oft selbst bzw. sie verdoppelt sich, um Selbstreferenzen herzustellen und um ein erweitertes Agitationsfeld zum Ausleben ihrer Künstlerpersönlichkeit zu schaffen. [...] Die Arbeit 'Get hold of this' aus weißem Gips und die vielen anderen Abgüsse davon in Beton oder buntem Plastik - übrigens in den Farben von Billardkugeln - stellen Abdrücke der beiden Unterarme der Künstlerin dar, die rechte Hand zu einer Faust geballt, vertikal aufgerichtet, der linke Arm horizontal über die Armbeuge des anderen gelegt. [.] Beton-, Wachs- oder Plastikarme ohne Torso, die etwas anderes bedeuten, als das, was sie darstellen. Es geht nicht um die Wiedergabe der Körperteile der Künstlerin, sondern um die Bedeutung der vulgären Alltagsgeste, die in eine skulpturale Sprache übersetzt wurde. Sie bezeichnet wie der Titel der Arbeit nichts anderes als eine Beleidigung in internationaler Zeichensprache [...]. (Angela Stief, In: Ausst.-Kat. Wien 2004, S. 98) .

Other work by this artist is included in 'Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection', currently on view at the Nationalgalerie, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin. LITERATURE S. Kent & J. Blyth, "Shark Infested Waters - The Saatchi Collection of British Art in the 90s", London 1994, p. 193 (illustrated in colour). EXHIBITION London, City Racing, 'Sarah Lucas', 1992. London, The Saatchi Gallery, 'Young British Artists II', Feb.-July 1993. Cologne, Art Cologne, 'Young British Art from the Saatchi Collection', Nov. 1993, (illustrated in the catalogue p.43.) Rotterdam, Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, 'Sarah Lucas', Feb.-March 1996 (illustrated in the catalogue p. 17.) Lisbon, Centro de Arte Moderna, da Fundaao Gulbenkian, 'Treasure Island', Feb.-May 1997. NOTES "She's a code-breaker and a ball-buster, a sabateur and a spy. Elegantly in your face, Lucas is a smutty, salt-of-the-earth lout whose unequivocal work is raw and loud and startling. It is also efficient and concise. In her art, Lucas doesn't mince words and she doesn't waste them either. She quickly gets to the point and the point usually has to do with the ways women are viewed in society." ( J. Saltz, 'She Gives as Good as She Gets', Parkett, no.45, 1995, p.177.) "When I was a teenager I thought, what I'd really like to do in my life is just think and talk. And I tried to pursue that as long as I could. And then it got sort of boring eventually, because if you're not doing anything, you've got nothing to talk about really. Your life has to move on somehow. To me it's just managed to become integral in my life. It's partly like thinking out aloud, I mean, its partly a conversation I'm having with myself. But if I just had it in my head it would disappear. It's a way of doing something in your life and being productive, you know to move on. It's my description of the world, in the same way that my life is my description of the world. Anybody's is. That's what I think it is to me and hopefully for other people. Some sort of useful description." (Sarah Lucas in: I. Goetz, 'Art from the UK: The work is my description of the world'. Munich 1997, p.130.) SALESROOM NOTICE Please note the proper medium of this work is photocopy collage mounted on wood.

Beard, 'Young British Art: the Saatchi decade, London 1999 (another from the edition illustrated in colour, p. 209). EXHIBITION New York, Barbara Gladstone Gallery, 'Sarah Lucas - Supersensible', Mar.-Apr. 1995. NOTES 'Where does it all end?' is an example of Lucas's self-portraiture where she presents herself as alternatively crude, laid-back and defiant. The work is a play on the visual and linguistic expressions of anger and aggression. The colour of the wax has a certain degree of naturalism, but it also represents hostility. It appears like a face without skin. The expression is not necessarily one of anger, but a threatening grimace that is naked and raw. The exasperated title is not a hopeful one and evokes an expression of resigned despair: "I don't make things which are really preciously made. I don't have the patience to be whittling away at something forever. I make things how I am, in the way I'd naturally do something." (S. Lucas, in C. Freedman, 'Bollocks', in: 'Parkett', no.45, 1995, p.109.) However, there is dexterity and control in her work. Lucas has pared down, edited out the unnecessary, to create an independent concise form. Lucas's interest in the material condition of the artwork, her use of casts and the reference to her own physique and person suggest an affinity with the work of Jasper Johns ('Target with Plaster Casts', 1955), Bruce Nauman ('From Hand to Mouth', 1967) and Robert Gober ('Untitled Leg', 1989-90).

Description: Human Toilet C-print 96 x 74in. (244 x 188.5cm.) Executed in 1997, this work is from an edition of 1 + 1 AP PROVENANCE Sadie Coles HQ, London. LITERATURE 'Sensation. Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection', London 1997 (another print illustrated, p. 114) NOTES "'The materials that I use must be weathered, you have to be able to see that they have a past. My images are not finely finished; I don't have the patience for that. I make things like I am myself. Artworks are actually descriptions, or at least mine are. Descriptions of an idea.' In her work she is reacting very immediately and visually to her environment and aspects of daily life. She commonly uses existing objects for these visual expresssions. There is also a lot of humour in her work. By taking the everyday so far out of its context, it becomes almost absurd and tasteless. Sarah uses bananas and melons, toilet pots and slot machines in order to express her ideas about men and women." (A. Paalman, in: 'Self Portraits. Caldic Collection', Rotterdam 1998. p.144.).

Executed in 1992 Other work by this artist is included in 'Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection', currently on view at the Nationalgalerie, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin. LITERATURE S. Kent & J. Blyth, 'Shark Infested Waters - The Saatchi Collection of British Art in the 90s', London 1994, p. 194 (illustrated in colour). J. van Adrichem 'Where Does It All End?' In: Parkett, no. 45, 1995, p.91 (illustrated in colour). EXHIBITION London, The Saatchi Gallery, 'Young British Artists II', Feb.-July 1993. Cologne, Art Cologne 'Young British Art from the Saatchi Collection', Nov. 1993. Rotterdam, Boymans-Van Beuningen Museum, 'Sarah Lucas', Feb.-March 1996 (illustrated in the catalogue, p.21). Lisbon, Centro de Arte Moderna da Fundaao Galbenkian, 'Treasure Island', Feb.-May 1997. NOTES "The artist herself appears in 'Great Dates' (1992), photographed wearing a leather jacket and with cropped hair that makes her look like a street-wise boy. She is eating a banana, but the gesture is transformed into an assertion of female sexuality, on its own terms. 'With only minor adjustments, a provocative image can become confrontational converted from an offer of sexual service into a castration image.' Pages from 'The Sunday Sport' newspaper, collaged onto board, form the backdrop to this act of reclamation. Gleaned from the newstand, these pages of naked flesh show how the idea of woman-as-a-sexual-toy is confirmed each day for thousands of men. 'I don't take pornography as my subject; I take the acceptable stuff available at 25p - common currency, rather than the deviant or marginal,' Lucas explains." (S. Kent, 'Young British Artists II', London 1993).

Description: Fat, Forty and Flab-ulous photocopy on paper 841/2 x 123in. (215 x 313cm.) Executed in 1990. PROVENANCE City Racing, London. NOTES "Borin' hubby bleats about my weight...now I want someone who loves feelin' folds of flesh in the sack" invites Ms. Flabulous. 'Fat, Forty and Flab-ulous', a blown-up page from the dubious London newspaper 'Sunday Sport', features an advert for a voluptuous prostitute, an article on lifting the lid on Madonna's hanky panky success, sex lines and wives for sale. Sarah Lucas began her career using the 'Sunday Sport' as source material, taking an interest in its splashes on outrageous sex scandals and sensationalist photographs of naked women. The assemblage of collages consisting of photocopies and cuttings from tabloid newspaper articles indicates something of the artist's class conciousness and her limited resources. This impersonal discipline in fashioning her work from existing, utilitarian objects accentuates the concrete quality of the media and serves in finding a common language of things that are familiar and understood. The interrelation of text, title and image serve together to point to a social/sexual content that at its best, suggest a terrible pathos, cloaked in a crass knockabout, very English humour. "It's a game for a laugh, not simply 'feminist' or 'political', it's about degradation, hilarity and deprivation, what Lucas depicts is lived by everyone. Her laughter embraces the macabre, the grotesque, the scatalogical and the reproductive." (Jerry Saltz: 'She Gives as Good as she Gets', in Parkett, No. 45, 1995). For Lucas, the body is not politically closed. In 'Fat, Forty and Flab-ulous', she conveys the exaggerated, the crude, the excessive, the material life of the body. A close-to-the-bone statement of "this is what it's really like" is portrayed in the obese Ms. Flabulous featured. The work is layered and intersected with obsession, desire, society and an insolent urban Britishness. The artist believes everything is connected to everything else, and in trying to cope with the vast amount of information and things already existing. Lucas has created new things and her work takes on a documentary function. However, what makes Lucas on e of the most sought after artists on the British art scene is her ability to combine everyday innocence with in your face gross-out metaphors for sex.

Description: Sarah Lucas (b.1962) self-portraits 1990-98 complete set of 12 iris prints, numbered 15 from the edition of 100, signed in pencil by the artist on the colophon, published by Sadie Coles HQ, London, 1999, in varying sizes (12) Provenance: Private Collection, London. Since the early 1990's, Sarah Lucas has challenged sexual stereotypes in a variety of provocative works. In this, her most famous series of photographs, she turns against the art-historical tradition of the female seductress or muse, and presents herself in a deliberately androgynous, and occasionally aggressive, series of poses. Adopting masculine gestures and stances, she photographs herself in unisex clothing like jeans and T-shirts, incorporating highly provocative props and motifs, themes that we see recurring throughout many of her works. These images also raise questions about the role and appearance of the modern artist. In contrast to the cliché of the artist as an anguished male, Lucas shows herself as an ordinary person in emphatically ordinary surroundings. Works include: Eating a Banana (1990), Divine (1991), Self Portrait with Mug of Tea (1993), Self Portrait with Knickers (1994), Self Portrait with Fried Eggs (1996), Human Toilet II (1996), Fighting Fire with Fire (1996), Self Portrait with Skull (1997), Got a Salmon On #3 (1997), Summer (1998), Smoking (1998), Human Toilet Revisited (1998).

Description: You Know What plaster, cigarette and table 33 x 31 x 37in. (85.1 x 78.7 x 94cm.) Executed in 1998, this work is unique PROVENANCE Barbara Gladstone Gallery, New York. Sadie Coles HQ, London, where acquired by the present owner. EXHIBITION New York, Barbara Gladstone Gallery, 'The Old In Out', Sept.-Oct. 1998. NOTES "It's not a direct protest against society. I mean, my feelings about society are that you shouldn't be complacent and that the society is only what most people think it should be. And if you think something is wrong, you should stand up for that. But on the other hand, I would hate to be bitter about things. I want to enjoy life, even if life can be ugly. My main concern is not to become bitter on the one hand and not to be complacent on the other. I think to do that you need to feel quite strong in yourself. You need to have the confidence both to enjoy things, to get something out of them and also to have the courage of your convictions, if necessary. So for me my work is about me. So things that could make me feel vunerable, or maybe worry about - I hopefully turn them into something that I don't have to be running away from. And that makes me feel stronger and therefore, I can face the world. And I hope in a way that that's what people can find in the work. That you actually don't have to be cowering, that you can just look things in the eye and get on with it." (S. Lucas, in: I. Goetz, 'The work is my description of the world - Interview with Sarah Lucas', in: Art from the UK, Munich 1997, p.135).

Description: It's Never Straight Up and Down two C-prints mounted on MDF each: 48 x 59in. (121.9 x 149.9cm.) Executed in 1998, this work is number one from an edition of three. PROVENANCE Barbara Gladstone Gallery, New York. NOTES Sarah Lucas confronts the viewer with sculpture and images that are uncompromisingly explicit in their references. She has used everyday objects, furniture, clothes, fruit, vegetables and cigarettes to convey in visual jokes the crude differences that exist between the two sexes. These photographs include her sculpture of two beer cans crushed together to create the representation of an erect penis: a pride and joy frequently undermined by the very substance used to portray it.
