It make me laugh because people say, "What? You got two thousand quid for two fried eggs and a kebab?" But some of these people actually don't see the table as part of it. They really do think it's only two fired eggs and a kebab.' - Sarah Lucas

During a career that has brought her controversy and acclaim in equal measure, Sarah Lucas has made art from the discarded and unexpected, incorporating such diverse materials as cigarettes, food, second-hand furniture and her own self-image.

In the first comprehensive survey of her work, popular writer Matthew Collings explores one of contemporary art's most fascinating figures. New interviews give an insight into the artist's own assessment of her work.

  • Rated 5 out of 5

    Self-deprecatingly funny and highly informative. Collings's conversational writing style is the ideal companion to an artist who does not want to be pinned down to specific interpretations and influences.
