Sarah Lucas – Au Naturel, Mattress

Sarah Lucas’s Au Naturel mattress takes on the gender roles within a relationship using fruit stuck in such a way to the mattress to create genitals of a man and a woman. This is a portrait of a man and a woman in bed slumped against the wall giving a humanistic quality to the mattress as if it was bodies leaning against the wall or slumped over. The usage of fruit that will soon decay may give the idea that we are all mortal and will decay like these objects used to create human genitals.
