  • About the artist
    Tracey Emin was born in London in 1963 and grew up in Margate. Emin has described her practice as being about ‘rites of passage, of time and age, and the simple realisation that we are always alone’. In recent years, painting and bronze sculpture have become her primary focus in works where the body as a battle ground comes to the fore. She has exhibited internationally at solo and group exhibitions in Holland, Germany, Japan, Australia and America. In 1999 she was short-listed for the Turner Prize at the Tate Gallery, London. She has had major exhibitions at the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2020); The Musée d’Orsay, Paris (2019); Château La Coste, Aix-en-Provence, France (2017); Leopold Museum, Vienna (2015); Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami (2013); Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires; and Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK (both, 2012); In 2007, Emin represented Britain at the Venice Biennale.
