I scream Daddio – Sarah Lucas

Venice, 2015

Artist Sarah Lucas is representing Britain at the 56th Venice International Art Biennale 2015 with her major solo exhibition in the British Pavilion, I Scream Daddio.

Widely recognised as one of Britain’s foremost contemporary artists, Sarah Lucas’s work – spanning sculpture, photography and installation – has consistently been characterised by its irreverent humour and deft use of ‘ready made’ objects – furniture, food, tabloid newspapers, tights, toilets and cigarettes. By turns lewd and lyrical, punning and paradoxical, her art continues to deal frankly with sex, death, abjectness and the slippery notion of Englishness.

Titled I Scream Daddio, Sarah Lucas’ solo exhibition at the British pavilion is accompanied by a new book designed by Julian Simmons, published by the British Council. To celebrate the launch of the book Kvadrat created a bespoke bag in Waterborn, in close collaboration with the artist herself.
