Sarah Lucas: Ordinary Things tracks the sculptural in the artist’s practice, examining the ‘things’ – items, objects and language – that constitute the world in which we live. Sculpture is formed of a narrow and specific history, concerned with the processes of making, and informed by the ways in which human beings use objects to attempt to make sense of the surrounding world.
This fully illustrated publication reflects on Sarah Lucas’ different uses of sculpture, mirroring the exhibition by breaking down the artist’s work into three sections, each taking their cue from a different element explored in Galleries 1, 2 and 3.
