As a fan of Sarah Lucas work I couldn't help but have a hanging sense of disappointment at this exhibition. Whilst walking through the spaces of her work the individual pieces were obnoxious overcrowding, loudly claiming anger and repulsion with a dated voice of feminism. Notably these pieces were created at a time when its origin of female-orientated protest was fresh and distinguishable from other artworks. Contemporary as it is, I think subtlety and space could have spoken stronger and louder with giving the pieces the space to speak. The brash movements of masturbating hand casts, hovering concrete vessels and toilet references all hinted at remaking the 1990's rather than any awareness or relation to todays' public and opinion. The place was a hell hole of angry statements, hard-to-digest imagery, and fuck yous - to me a cliche language of crucial social issues. I ended up bored and thankful for the top floor galleries "Nothing Beautiful unless Useful", a great and varied exhibition with glassware and post industrial revolution crafts.

Not a fan of Sarah's work unfortunately. It shouts and screams and is boring as hell. Its a bit like being in a City Bar on a Friday night.
