OUGD501 Sarah Lucas (Studio Brief One)

Sarah Lucas' work often includes photography, collage and objects, and is often humorous. Lucas created a series entitled ‘Ordinary Things’, in which she would create installations of household objects and food to create thought provoking artwork. Her installation entitled ‘Au Naturel 1994’ uses a mattress, water bucket, melons, oranges and a cucumber to resemble the sexual organs of both a man and a woman lying on a bed, ready for sexual intercourse. The melons used for the woman’s breasts reference the use of the word ‘melon’ in popular slang. ‘In this way, Lucas is showing how sexuality is embedded in language through association with everyday objects.’
