Tracey Emin was born on July 3 1963 in Croydon, United
Kingdom.Tracey Emin is an English artist.
She is part of the group known as Britartists or YBAs.
Tracey Emin is using her life events as inspiration for works from painting, drawing, video and installation, to photography, needlework and sculpture. Tracey Emin reveals her hopes, humiliations, failures and successes in candid and, at times, excoriating work that is frequently both tragic and humorous.
In 2007, she represented england at the 52nd Venice Biennale with her exhibition
Borrowed Light and was made a Royal Academician. In 2008 Tracey Emin had her first major retrospective Twenty Years at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern
Art, Edinburgh which toured to CAC, Malaga in 2008 and Kunstmuseum Bern in
2009. She had a major survey exhibition Love Is What You Want at the Hayward
Gallery in 2011 and a solo exhibition at Turner Contemporary, Margate in 2012. A touring exhibition of her films was organised by MALBA, Buenos Aires in 2012. In
2010, she collaborated with Louise Bourgeois on a suite of works on paper, entitled
‘Do Not Abandon Me’ and in 2011 she became the Royal Academy's Professor of
Drawing.
She is using her own experience – and also her own body – as source material for the work, she explores ideas of self-portraiture and narrative disclosure, both intimately bound up with her own biography. She grew up in the seaside resort of Margate and her work often refers to traumatic episodes from her childhood as well as to her teenage years which had unexpected pregnancies and abortions. She recounts episodes from these years in a unique form of revelation art that has a non-voyeuristic intimacy since her stories are neither tragic nor sentimental and often deeply resonate with her audience.
Tracey Emin currently lives and works in
London
