‘Sarah Lucas: Bunny Book’ catalogues Sarah Lucas’s ongoing – and now iconic – sculptural Bunny series, begun in 1997.
Formed of tights stuffed with kapok or wool fluff, stockings (and latterly shoes), appended to chairs, the sculptures conjure the uncanny spectacle of seated female nudes in states of abject vulnerability and abandon, adapting over time to assume a more emphatic self-confidence and attitudinising swagger.
Spanning Lucas’s three-decade career, this richly illustrated catalogue brings together seminal works in the series charting their evolution through the addition of colour, plinths and cast bronze, concrete and metal.
Sarah Lucas is represented by Sadie Coles, London.
Recent exhibitions include the major public solo show ‘Happy Gas’, 28 Sep 2023 – 14 Jan 2024 at Tate Britain, London and ‘BIG WOMEN: Curated by Sarah Lucas’, 11 Feb – 18 Jun 2023, Firstsite, Colchester.
