Tracey Emin X Harland Miller

December 17, 2013 by Emma

Tracey Emin and Harland Miller, two names synonymous with London’s contemporary art scene, come together in 'Dedication', the latest episode of the series in conjunction with EDITION Hotels, shot by their old friend, the long-time documentarian Johnnie Shand Kydd.

Rather than a collaboration, I see it more as helping each other out,” says Emin. “When I was a younger artist, we all used to do that.” Emin rose to international fame in the late 1990s as one of a new wave of British conceptual artists championed by collector Charles Saatchi, and featured in his seminal exhibition of 1997 Sensation. While Emin and Miller muse on the focused and frequently isolated world that artists inhabit in this video, they also discuss their occasional collaborations with other artists, including each other.

Miller has published several novels and become known for his large canvasses depicting satirical, fictional Penguin covers, and in 2008 organized an exhibition, You Dig the Tunnel, I’ll Hide the Soil, at London’s White Cube Gallery, where he asked artists as well as Emin to make a work as a response to a particular piece of writing by Edgar Allan Poe. Emin obliterated Miller’s own contribution to their joint work by painting over it, but Miller remained unfazed. “That’s a positive part of collaboration,” says Miller. “You have to take it on the chin.”
