I am not Chicken Knickers

I blog as ChickenUnderwear

A friend photographs art and said this reminded her of me.

It was on display in the Tate

Chicken Knickers  1997

Purchased 1998
Following the Surrealist tradition, Lucas places familiar objects in shocking or unexpected arrangements. Many of these exploit the sexual innuendo that is a key feature of popular British comedy, from Carry On films to Viz magazine. In this photograph, the humour has a troubling edge. Displaying a plucked chicken in place of a young woman''s genitals, Lucas hints at the violation and gender stereotyping that underlies such jokes.
