British artist and member of the “YBA generation,” Sarah Lucas (b. 1962) is known for the visual puns and bawdy humor of her irreverent artworks and installations. For her sixth exhibition and publication at Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin (2017), Lucas staged a four-day communal happening on Easter weekend she referred to as a “work in progress.” Lucas’s new exhibition, FunQroc, invited visitors to participate in a happening in which foot washings were offered by the artist on Holy Thursday, an afternoon concert on Good Friday and an action-painting-happening, 1000 Eggs, encouraging women to throw eggs at a gallery wall on Saturday. On Easter Sunday, poetry readings, music and visual works, plus a finale featuring an action painting for men titled Ejaculation ended the weekend event. This unassuming slender exhibition catalog opens up to 100 vivid color plates documenting every aspect of this wild and free-flowing event. At a time when art is usually so calm, this chaotic document is a breath of fresh air!
