Find out what you need to know about Tracey Emin, the mischievous kid of contemporary art, whose works caused controversy.
Life of Tracey Emin
Tracey Emin, known by the masses with the work My Bed exhibited by Tate Liverpool in 1998, came to the fore by getting married with the stone she found in the garden of her house in France a few years ago.
The works of the artist, whose works are in the permanent collections of museums, are also included in the collections of music stars such as Elton John and George Michael. The artist shares that she was particularly influenced by the works of Munch, Schiele, Basquiat, Nauman and Rauschenberg.
“Being an artist means making art, not making money” – Tracey Emin
Collaborating with jewelry designer Stephen Webster for 35 pieces, the artist named this collection I Promise to Love You and applied some of her neon works as gold necklaces.
The artist is described as the domestication of the wild-tempered artist, when Tracey Emin was previously appointed as a drawing teacher at the Royal Academy, for whom a limited number of lithographs were ordered for the 2012 Olympics and the Paralympic Games.
Unable to take delivery of the neon work she ordered, the work belonging to Kate Moss is accidentally thrown into the garbage and taken by someone passing by. Since the things in the garbage belong to the finder according to the laws, it may be beneficial for those who pass through the artist studios to be careful.
