Aside from a number of her landmark pieces such as Au Naturel chronicling her glittering career, the show also highlights a roster of the artist's new creations made of locally found objects during her residency in the Chinese capital.

Born in London in 1962, Lucas made her name as a major voice of the YBAs (Young British Artists), a contemporary art movement started by a group of Goldsmiths College arts students in the late 1980s with an aim to reshape the British art scene.

In 2015, Lucas was chosen as the only artist to represent the UK at the 56th Venice International Art Biennale with her major solo exhibition I Scream Daddio, in the British Pavilion.

The exhibition runs until Feb 16, 2020.
