Tracey Emin's 'My Bed' returns to Tate Britain

March 30, 2015 by Ishah

Tracey Emin's iconic installation work, 'My Bed' (1998) will be returning to Tate Britain, after the current owner, Count Duerckheim confirmed the work will return to the UK on a ten year loan. 'My Bed' was first show in 1999 at the Tate Britain, in the Turner Prize Exhibition where Emin was shortlisted. Returning after fifteen years, the piece will be open to the public on 31 March 2015. 

    Emin's 'My Bed' was conceived during a traumatic relationship breakdown in her council flat near Waterloo station in 1998. The work gives us a snapshot of this distressing period but also acts as an unconventional self-portrait through the use of honest objects. The installation features the artist’s own stained sheets, condoms, blood-stained underwear and empty bottles of alcohol. The installation will be shown alongside a refresh of Tate Britain's galleries featuring major works by Gilbert & George, Anish Kapoor, Nicholas Pope and John Gerrard. Emin has also selected two works by Francis Bacon, 'Study of a Dog' (1952) and 'Reclining Woman' (1961). The juxtaposition is intended to create a dialogue, with works by both artists dealing in different ways with turmoil and intense emotion.

    Tracey Emin’s art is one of disclosure, using her life events as inspiration for works ranging from painting, drawing, video and installation, to photography, needlework and sculpture. Emin reveals her hopes, humiliations, failures and successes in candid and, at times, excoriating work that is frequently both tragic and humorous.
