Sarah Lucas Gets First Major Museum Exhibit in the US
Sarah Lucas personally fried and transported dozens of fresh eggs for her installation Good Muse at the Legion of Honor. The fact that visitors will have to make do with replica yolks and whites from Japantown does not take away from the freshness of this exhibition – fresh as in current and brash.
In her earthy, direct manner, the British artist presents avant garde without pretense. Plaster cast torsos sinew atop bright white appliances in rooms of Rodin, poking fun and penetrating thoughts. Start out by gasping at the six-foot tall platform heeled boots towering at the entrance and have a rollicking Good Muse.
