Spring 2019 brings the unveiling of brand new work by Tracey Emin at White Cube, Bermondsey. Bringing together a collection of work, spanning the entire space, A Fortnight of Tears showcases Emin’s largest bronze sculptures, new photography, painting, and film. The exhibition chronicles the most recent developments in the artist’s practice, stemming from deeply personal memories and emotions ranging from loss, grief, longing, and spiritual love.
Metro Imaging is delighted to continue our longstanding relationship with Tracey Emin, producing over 60 large-scale Fine Art Giclée prints for the debut of her new photographic project, Insomnia. The images, printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, have been selected from thousands of self-portraits taken by the artist on her iPhone over the last couple of years, spontaneously capturing prolonged periods of restlessness and inner turmoil.
In addition to this, the major exhibition will include three monumental, bronze sculptures (Emin’s largest to date), shown alongside her lyrical and expressive paintings. Developed through a process of drawing, the paintings are then intensely reworked and added to, layer upon layer. Filmmaking has also been an integral part of Emin’s career for over 20 years. To mark this, the artist will show a new film, as well as the key early work How It Feels (1996), a candid and moving account of her abortions that changed her whole approach to making art.
