LOVE IS WHAT YOU WANT

I went to Southbank last weekend and saw this delightful exhibition of Tracey Emin. Her autobiographical art is genuine and intense. Making use of painting, video, text, neon, sculpture and memorabilia the show presents experiences from her own life that explore female sexuality, family and friendship. Well worth a visit!

Her impressive video How it Feels recounts her abortion experience in details while love is a strange thing plays a funny performance between her and a dog. Why I never became a dancer, where she is dancing very casual, is another video performance that I love it. It’s a shame I couldn’t record or find them on the internet. ;/

See below part of the show:
