Most of the art critical focus of Sarah Lucas’s self portraits, whether mainstream or feminist has been on her strategy of returning with interest stereotypical projections of cultural and sexual identity on her physical appearance and comportment. Overlooked is the possibility that certain self portraits are also inscribed with Lucas’s subjectivity as an artist, in other words that they bear traces of the history of her particular formation as a sculptor in Britain in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The presentation will explore this idea in a reading of four self-portraits: Self Portrait with Knickers (1994), Self Portrait with Fried Eggs (1996), Supersensible (1995) and 1978 (2000).
