‘Sarah Lucas: Good Muse’ At Legion Of Honor, San Francisco
SLegion of Honor, San Francisco will present Sarah Lucas from July 15 through September 17, 2017.Sarah Lucas has gained notoriety for creating sculptures and installations that showcase the innate crudeness of stereotypical conceptions of gender and sexuality. From the outset, Lucas has used self-portraiture to debunk conservative notions of femininity; adopting stances associated with male behavior that purposefully foster sexual ambiguity. Lucas’s penchant for androgyny has also filtered into her sculpture, with bodies that flaunt both male and female attitudes and attributes and deny any clear association with either. Often utilizing found objects, she makes confrontational, bawdy sculptures, installations, photographs, and mixed media works on paper, full of Freudian implications. She finds euphemistic potential in everyday items.
