Current Viewing: Sarah Lucas: Nud Nob : Gladstone Gallery ( New York)

This show features a series of large-scale bronze and cast-concrete sculptures displayed variously on pedestals, and, at other times, installed directly on the floor. Characteristic of Lucas’s practice, the works simultaneously suggest multiple forms, as with the two monumental bronze works Florian and Kevin, which appear as both oversized vegetables and phallic-shaped sculptures. By confronting viewers with objects that are at once familiar and disorienting, Lucas proposes a reading of her work that seeks to subtly subvert socially constructed norms.

“By investigating the sense of spirituality that comes from the feelings of strangeness and affinity born from the physical relationship between objects and shapes, I hope that the viewer will get a foretaste of an alternate world that opens out from there.”
