Although she was first associated with the punkish Young British Artists of the 1990s, Lucas’s sculptures and photographs also engage the legacy of Surrealism by cleverly transforming found objects and everyday materials like cigarettes, fruits, and vegetables into absurd and confrontational tableaux that address subjects like death, sex, gender, and religion. The human body and anthropomorphic forms recur throughout Lucas’s works, often appearing erotic, humorous, or fragmented. Whether in her soft sculptures—such as her stuffed-stocking _NUDS_—or in her photographic self-portraits, Lucas’s works take on ambiguity and paradox and defy stereotypical representations of gender with distinct irreverence and wit. For the New Museum’s anniversary, Lucas has created a special edition, Eating a Banana (Revisited) (1990–2017), which returns to an early self-portrait, never printed, that shared a contact sheet with her first self-portrait, the now-iconic Eating a Banana (1990).
