Lutz Bacher: Black Beauty

The first major solo exhibition in the UK by American artist Lutz Bacher. This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to see Bacher?s new works made specifically for the ICA together with recent work. The artist?s expansive work explores human identity as it is defined through gender, sexuality and the human body. Lutz Bacher is as elusive as her work is ambiguous, perhaps preferring not to dictate how her works should be viewed. The exhibition at the ICA presents new and recent works which combine striking installations with film, sound and sculpture. At the core of the exhibition is Black Beauty (2012), several tons of coal slag which will flow throughout the lower gallery.
