This monograph features an extensive overview of the unusual photographs, sculptures, and installations by Sarah Lucas (*1962 in London), which often appear raw and aggressive. In her works, the artist frequently unmasks the chauvinism of slang. Even though it might seem acceptable to describe a young woman as a "chick," Lucas's provocative work entitled Chicken Knickers, however, reveals hidden associations and, with true dry British humor, irrevocably strips the expression of any cuteness. Another significant element of Lucas's oeuvre are her androgynous self-portraits, in which the artist, with challenging gaze and a cigarette dangling from her lips, undermines the cool male pose she often adopts by using accessories with female connotations.
