Putting Your Gut On Display (Explicit)
Editor in Chief: Najaam Lee
TRACEY EMIN, pop artist, born and raised in London, England, is very well-known for her erotic- pop-shock-art.
I encountered Tracey’s art through the controversial piece called ” The Tent ” which is basically names of all the men, lovers she has ever slept between 1963 to 1995 …
On the outside of the Tent, she labels the time period of when some of these sexual experiences occurred. Its very bold, gut wrenching to tell the world all the names of your lovers. And also, how do all the people she named feel about her telling the world. How did this affect their life? Its quite intriguing to do.
But what I got to understand also about ” TENT” is that nearly half of these named were not sexual, but more intimate on a emotional level.
Tracey has inspired me as an artist to not be afraid to face my truths and my past life experiences. To truly understand and identify myself and express that.
Maybe this is the ticket to becoming famous fast?
Tracey grew up poor in Margate; was raped at age 13; had quit school at the age of 14 and decided to become an artist. She studied fashion at Medway College of Design 9 1980- 1982); studied printing at Maidstone Art College in 1984; In 1987, Tracey attended Royal College of Art in London and received a MA in painting, then switched up her path by studying philosophy at Birkbeck University of London. She did not have children because art always came first.
Do we dare put our whole life on display for others to look through and criticize? No, many of us are too embarrassed to be that completely naked and take our nakedness to the streets revealing all imperfections….
Tracey is an artist that has expressed her art through various mediums such as painting, sculpting, film, video, photography, and writing.
Her work can be seen in London , Los Angeles, New York to Tokyo.
