The most irreverent and provocative artist on the English contemporary scene A book conceived to engage a non specialized audience with contemporary art
Provocative, narcissist, ironic: defining the style of this English artist is quite difficult. Lucas, born in London in1962, realizes her installations using different materials and objects belonging to everyday life, but she is a photographer as well. Her works – already renowned and on display all over the world – belong to the permanent collections of many important museums of contemporary art, such as the Tate Modern in London.
The book, edited by Michele Robecchi, an attentive observer of the international artistic scene, presents a selection of 40 works by Lucas, complete with accurate explanatory texts, clarifying the artist’s purposes and deciphering her language
