Catalogue Note

"Ms. Lucas’ works tend to be raw, sexually hilarious and heartily skeptical of propriety and societal repressiveness, especially concerning the body and its basic impulses...There’s also the increasing richness with which her art connects to the history of modern sculpture, beginning with Dada and Surrealism. For starters, her toilets could be seen as female rejoinders to Duchamp’s urinal, and, of course, her work is riddled with variations on the ready-made."

Roberta Smith, "Sarah Lucas, Unmasked: From Perverse to Profound," The New York Times, 5 September 2018, p. AR76
