Published to coincide with the first major survey of Emin’s work in London, Tracey Emin: Love is What You Want is a comprehensive monograph emphasising the diversity of this major artist's practice, including work on sculpture, drawing, painting, text-based works, textiles, photographs, video and performance. This comprehensive monograph also features rarely-seen early works and recent large-scale installations along with new outdoor sculptures created especially for the Hayward Gallery show in 2011.
Tracey Emin: Love is What You Want was published to coincide with the first major survey exhibition of Emin’s work in London, that took place at the Hayward Gallery from the 18 May to 29 August 2011.
Since she first emerged in the early 1990s, Emin has made art that takes as its starting point the most harrowing and intimate details of her personal history. Sometimes confrontational or sexually provocative, her art resonates with the ‘personal political’ legacy of feminist art while at the same time speaking to relationships in general, as well as exploring spirituality, cultural identity, class and celebrity. Disarmingly frank and often deeply confessional, much of Emin’s art is also animated by her playful and ironic wit.
Conceived and produced in close collaboration with the artist, this volume brings together suites of works from across the artist’s career, emphasising the diversity of her dynamic practice, and highlighting her achievements in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, text-based works, textiles, photographs, video and performance. This comprehensive monograph also features seldom-seen early works and recent large-scale installations along with new outdoor sculptures created especially for the Hayward Gallery show.
