Avant-garde UK artist Sarah Lucas, internationally acclaimed for her humor-packed creations - themed after gender, death, and sexuality - realized through everyday objects, is holding her largest museum solo to date in Asia at the Red Brick Art Museum in Beijing.
Deemed as "a big show surveying my career of thirty years" by the artist herself, the Beijing exhibition features more than 100 Lucas's works, including installations, photographs, and sculptures, said curator Yan Shijie, director of the Red Brick Art Museum.
"I believe the Chinese audience is ready for the upcoming cultural hurricane of Sarah Lucas," Yan remarked ahead of the launch of the artist's China solo.
Aside from a number of her landmark pieces such as Au Naturel chronicling her glittering career, the show also highlights a roster of the artist's new creations made of locally found objects during her residency in the Chinese capital.
Born in London in 1962, Lucas made her name as a major voice of the YBAs (Young British Artists), a contemporary art movement started by a group of Goldsmiths College arts students in the late 1980s with an aim to reshape the British art scene.
In 2015, Lucas was chosen as the only artist to represent the UK at the 56th Venice International Art Biennale with her major solo exhibition I Scream Daddio, in the British Pavilion.
