More information

'Bitch' by the English artist Sarah Lucas is a provocative work about lust. It is a construction of a wooden table with a T-shirt that is pulled over two legs and part of the tabletop. Two melons hang in the shirt. A fish packed in plastic hangs on the other side of the table. The melons and the fish refer to the female sexual organs. In combination with the table, this immediately suggests a woman bending over forwards.
