The artist Sarah Lucas

  • Part of the Young British Artists (YBAs).
  • Fashions installations, objects, photographs and collages.
  • The central theme of her works: sexuality and gender role models.

Sarah Lucas, born 1962 in Holloway, London, is a contemporary artist whose work focuses on society's view of male desire in relation to the concept of gender roles. To this end, she creates objects, installations, photographs and collages.  She has been dedicated to this theme from the very beginning, and her first exhibition in 1992 at the London gallery City Racing bore the programmatic title A Penis nailed to a Board.

Recurring materials in her installations and objects are pieces of furniture such as mattresses, chairs and everyday objects such as nylon stockings. She prefers to depict abstracted human bodies (parts), all headless, which evoke sexual associations and the associated social images through their posture and the emphasised depiction of genitals, mostly phalluses.

Lucas was part of the so-called Young British Artists, a loose, unofficial group of a few dozen people working in the arts, which existed mainly in the 1990s and did not call itself that at first, but was given that title by media. In the Young British Artists environment, she participated in some of their self-curated exhibitions that are still well-known today. These include Freeze (1988), Brilliant! (1995), Sensation (1997) and Intelligence - New British Art 2000, all of which took place at London's Tate Britain.

After Lucas attended the adult education centre Working Men's College in London, she quickly devoted herself to her artistic training, attending the London College of Printmaking from 1983 to 1984 and then Goldsmiths College, the visual arts branch of the University of London.

Die Künstlerin Sarah Lucas

  • Teil der Young British Artists (YBAs).
  • Fertigt Installationen, Objekte, Fotografien und Collagen.
  • Zentrales Thema ihrer Werke: Sexualität und geschlechtliche Rollenbilder.

Sarah Lucas, geb. 1962 in Holloway, London, ist eine zeitgenössische Künstlerin, deren Werke sich dem gesellschaftlichen Blick auf männliche Lust in Relation zum weiblichen Rollenverständnis widmen. Hierzu fertigt sie Objekte, Installationen, Fotografien und Collagen an.  Dieser Thematik hat sie sich von Beginn an verschrieben, und so trug bereits ihre erste eigene Ausstellung 1992 in der Londoner Galerie City Racing den programmatischen Titel A Penis nailed to a board.

Wiederkehrende Materialien ihrer Installationen und Objekte sind Möbelstücke wie Matratzen Stühle sowie Alltagsgegenstände wie Nylonstrümpfe. Sie stellt mit Vorliebe abstrahierte menschliche Körper(-teile) dar, allesamt kopflos, die durch ihre Haltung und die betonte Darstellung von Geschlechtsteilen, meist Phallen, sexuelle Assoziationen und die verknüpften gesellschaftlichen Bilder hervorrufen.

Lucas war Teil der sogenannten Young British Artists, einer losen, inoffiziellen Gruppierung von gut 20 künstlerisch tätigen Personen, die hauptsächlich in den 1990er-Jahren bestand und sich zunächst nicht selbst so bezeichnete, sondern durch die Medien so betitelt wurde. Im Umfeld der Young British Artists nahm sie an einigen derer noch heute bekannten selbst kuratierten Ausstellungen teil.

Dazu gehören Freeze (1988), Brilliant! (1995), Sensation (1997) und Intelligence – New British Art 2000, die jeweils in der Londoner Tate Britain stattfanden. Nachdem Lucas das Erwachsenenbildungszentrum Working Men's College in London besuchte, widmete sie sich sehr schnell ihrer künstlerischen Ausbildung und besuchte 1983 bis 1984 das London College of Printmaking und anschließend das Goldsmiths College, den Zweig für Bildende Kunst der University of London.
