|Tracey Emin at the White Cube|
"When I think about sex... it makes me Realize just how alone I Feel. The idea of actualy holding , touching - Feeling a breath, knowing the smell of Someone - And the Fear of life, I am a demented warrior charging into battle on every heightened occasion What the world perceives of me From the outside is not the same From within"
Tracey Emin 2005
White Cube is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by one of Britain's most celebrated artists Tracey Emin.
Emin's art discloses the intimate details of her life across a range of media: drawing, filmmaking, installation, painting, neon, photography, sewn work and sculpture. Emin exposes herself, her hopes, humiliations, failures and successes in a direct and frank manner. Often tragic and frequently humorous, it is as if by telling her story and weaving it into the fiction of her art she transforms her idiosyncratic obsessions into issues of broader relevance.
Emin has exhibited internationally including solo and group exhibitions in Germany, Japan, Australia and America. In 1999 she was short-listed for the Turner Prize at the Tate Gallery (London). She has had solo shows at Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Haus der Kunst (Munich), Modern Art Oxford and Art Gallery of New South Wales (Australia) 2003.
White Cube is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am - 6pm and Sunday 12pm -5pm. For further information please contact Honey Luard or Susannah Hyman on 020 7930 5373.
illustrated catalogue with a text by Rudi Fuchs will accompany the exhibition.
