The bawdy euphemisms, repressed truths, erotic delights and sculptural possibilities of the sexual body lie at the heart of Sarah Lucas’s work (b. 1962). First coming to prominence in the 1990s with a show at London’s City Racing memorably titled, Penis Nailed to a Board, this British artist’s sculpture, photography and installation have established her as one of the most important figures of her generation.
Ten artists and collectives ask the question 'what if?' in this latest exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery. Each of the artists examine possible futures for the economy, environment and society.
Featuring installations and events, this display engages visitors in playful and provocative models for social change.
Laure Prouvost presents a two-part installation inspired by the aesthetic and sensuous pleasures of Italy. Referencing the genre of panoramic painting, Prouvost creates a cylindrical structure interspersed with collages and monitors.
This immersive environment leads to an idyllic inner space revealing Swallow (2013), a film showing fragments of footage, from birds to women bathing in waterfalls. Exploring language and translation, Prouvost plays on the historic idea of visiting the Mediterranean for inspiration.
