Sadie Coles gallery will reopening gallery spaces from Friday 03 July, at the usual hours: Tuesday to Saturday 11-6.
You will be able to visit Sarah Lucas HONEY PIE at 62 Kingly Street which was due to open to the public in March and see Jim Lambie NORTHERN SOUL at 1 Davies Street which has also been extended.
The exhibition consists of several sculptures made from stuffed tights and found objects, alongside an equal number of works in bronze and concrete. First conceived in 1997, Lucas’s Bunny sculptures evoke female nudes reclining on chairs in states of abandon and vulnerability. Employing the same everyday materials, the soft sculptures in HONEY PIE develop this formula through anatomical contortions, flamboyant footwear and chairs of eclectic shape and size. Bright colours applied to the figures’ limbs give them the appearance of a surrealist chorus line, at once exotic and comedic. Lucas has elevated the works on a series of plinths that reinforce their individualism, resetting the balance of power between sculpture and viewer.
