Sarah Lucas makes sculptures from an unexpected range of everyday materials, such as worn furniture, clothing, cigarettes, fruit and vegetables. This sculpture was originally exhibited as part of a larger work, consisting of eight similar ‘bunny girl’ figures limply arranged around a snooker table. To be ‘snookered’, in the language of the game, means to be prevented from scoring. This figure is made from nylon tights stuffed with cotton wadding, and is clipped to an unremarkable office chair. The limp, floppy form undermines the fantasy of the glamorous ‘bunny girl’.
