Au Naturel (1994) – Sarah Lucas
Sarah Lucas is part of the generation of Young British Artists who emerged during the 1990s. Her works frequently employ visual puns and humour, and include photography, collage and found objects. It was in the early 1990s when Lucas began using furniture as a substitute for the human body. Au Naturel is an assemblage of objects — a mattress, a bucket, a pair of melons, oranges and a cucumber—that suggest male and female body parts.
