Lucas is representing Great Britain at the 56th Venice Biennale . Her Pavillion is like a giant ray of sunlight due to the perfect yellow she has chosen as the only colour for the  show  'I scream Daddio' . Some critics have pointed out the colour is that of a perfect bowl of custard and therefore as British as can be.  The elegantly crossed legs had to be included here as they are a perfect anatomical addition to the blog.  I understand the many casts to have been made using friends and even her art dealer. 

I arrived expecting to hate it and left thinking it one of the stronger contributions in this year's Biennale.
