Here we were in a world that was defined by phallic shapes, a woman’s bottom, furniture recovered from the dust heap of memory, and a color. Yellow was the shows’ predominant colour – on nobs, walls – and of course yellow is the colour of eggs, and eggs connote fertility, and fertility connotes a woman’s private, and a woman’s privates are not fertile unless fertilised, and for that you need a nob.
Sarah Lucas’, I SCREAM DADDIO catalogue accompanies Lucas’ British Pavilion solo show at the Venice Biennale in 2015 (9 May – 22 November 2015). Lucas’ works for the British Pavilion reprise and reinvent the themes that have come to define her powerfully irreverent art – gender, death, sex and the innuendo residing in everyday objects. This catalogue also includes text by Sarah Lucas and poems by D.H. Lawrence.
