The Mug is a collaborative project between artist Sarah Lucas and poet enfant terrible Olivier Garbay, exploring the ways in which the pair catalogue their thoughts and ideas. Presented here as a stream-of-consciousness alphabetised address book, the volume mixes Garbay's free-form Anglo-Gallic poetry with Lucas' various artistic experiments, dabbling in dirt, dominoes, and drinking. In the words of Thomas Edison, genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, and Lucas and Garbay have collected every last drop here in 'The Mug', giving the viewer insight into two unharnessed, utterly creative minds.

After 2005, Before 2012 is a major new survey of the work of British sculptor Sarah Lucas (born 1962), from 2005--when her last catalogue raisonné was published--to 2011, in which year she received major solo exhibitions at Two Rooms, Auckland, New Zealand, and Kunsthalle Krems, Austria. The book traces the development of several important bodies of work, from the Penetralia sequence begun in 2008, a series of plaster and fiberglass sculptures of totemic pink phalluses, to the recent series of NUDS sculptures, which consist of nylon tights stuffed with fluff and fashioned into ambiguous biomorphic forms, redolent of Louise Bourgeois. Both series extend Lucas’ sculptural exploration of crude genital representations. The book includes a series of interviews between Lucas and artists, curators, writers and friends such as Angus Fairhurst and Angus Cook.

Is that a light bulb in your pantyhose, or are you just happy to see me? This impressionistic catalogue of recent pieces from the perennially provocative Sarah Lucas documents an installation in the artist's own messy photographs and handwritten notes, along with text fragments by her partner, the writer Olivier Garbay. A highly intimate, highly coded, and highly revealing assemblage.

GOD IS DAD. That was the title of Sarah Lucas's last show in New York, in which the pun-prone artist assembled an array of sculptures constructed from cast concrete forms, tacky beige nylon stockings and random metal objects. These typically abject art pieces fit right into the body of work Lucas has been building since the early 1990s from apparently banal, everyday materials. Old, worn furniture, clothing, food, newspapers, cigarettes, cars, resin, plaster, neon lamps and light fixtures combine to form grungy assemblages whose appearance belies the serious and complex subject matter they address. Through the slyly anthropomorphic character of her sculptures, Lucas makes constant reference to the human body, questioning gender definitions and challenging male-dominated culture, especially that espoused by the sensationalist British press. She subverts sexual stereotypes in her appropriations of the tabloid vernacular and by making unexpected juxtapositions of objects, often employing visual wit and a defiant, bawdy humor. Her most iconic work, “Two Fried Eggs and a Kebab,” which was included in the landmark Sensation exhibition in 1999, bears this out with a nasty wink: The title, which precisely describes the materials from which the piece was made, is slang for, well... just look it up. This extensive, large-format catalogue comprehensively tracks the career of one of the leading figures in an outstanding generation of British artists. Lucas, who first came to attention as a YBA (Young British Artist) in the 1990s, is here granted her first major exhibition survey. Included in this accompanying publication is documentation of key works, plus new work made especially for the Tate Liverpool. It is the most comprehensive publication on the artist to date.
