Overview:

The ‘A Fortnight of Tears’ Exhibition took place at The White Cube, Bermondsey.

Born in Croydon, Tracey Emin is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most famous artists. Her art is internationally renowned and has been showcased across the globe. She is known for creating intimate, confessional art closely connected to her emotions and life experiences. “There should be something revelatory about art. It should be totally creative and open doors for new thoughts and experiences.” Emin has experienced much pain and trauma in her life and her artwork reflects this. In her latest solo exhibition ‘A Fortnight of Tears’, Emin’s work, showcased across 6 spaces, takes many different forms – painting, drawing, sculpture, film, photography and neon. She expresses the physical and emotional trauma of sexual abuse, abortion and bereavement, whilst at the same time celebrates the female form, female sexuality, intimacy and enduring love. Her work is inextricably linked to her life events and the joy and suffering of humanity.
