Tracey Emin might not be the enfant terrible of British art anymore (she’s 55) but anything she does is still capable of creating a stir.
Her new FREE heart-wrenching exhibition, ‘A Fortnight of Tears’ is a display of raw emotion and personal pain. The collection at White Cube Bermondsey centres upon the death of Emin’s mother with dozens of self-portraits and paintings depicting the artist’s grief and mourning process.
Visitors should look out for a new a film showing a box containing Emin’s mother’s ashes screened alongside the artwork hung up on the wall..
The collection is also a celebration of femininity and motherhood. There’ll be nude sculptures and statues on show as well as canvasses combining newer and older works. Sometimes unsettling, often challenging, it’s a must see from a national treasure.
