Sarah Lucas: Sense of Human

In the organizer's words:

In her work, Sarah Lucas (*1962 in London, UK) takes a critical and humorous look at aspects of the human body and its social attributions. Characterized by a radical yet elegant formal language, she questions social norms and gender stereotypes in her photographs, sculptures and installations. Everyday objects and language often find their way into her work, which she playfully places in new contexts of meaning and explores fundamental themes of sculpture.

In her first institutional exhibition in Germany since 2005, Lucas brings together works from almost four decades of artistic creation. These range from early works from the 1990s to recent works in which she further develops issues of the physical in the social field.

Sarah Lucas studied at Goldsmiths College and was associated with the Young British Artists group in the 1990s. In 2015, she was featured in the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, and in 2018 an extensive retrospective was dedicated to her at New York's New Museum. A major survey exhibition is currently on show at the TATE Britain in London. Sarah Lucas is currently regarded as one of the most influential artists in the UK and internationally.
