Tracey Emin – A Fortnight of Tears – Exclusive Video and Insight

Share

I happily spent this morning/early afternoon with Tracey Emin at a press invitation to her brand new exhibition entitled ‘A Fortnight of Tears‘ at the White Cube, Bermondsey, London, SE1. This is a major exhibition installed throughout the gallery’s spaces, exhibits include sculpture, neon, painting, film, photography and drawing, all focusing on Emin’s own memories and emotions, arising from loss, pathos, anger and love.

This exhibition is one to feast upon, throughout the exhibition Emin articulates the joy and suffering that is intrinsic to our human existence. Often with fraught memories of sexual relations, the very physical and emotional trauma she endured with her abortion of twins (past three months pregnancy), and most notably the passing of her mother. Pain is very much of the theme of ‘A Fortnight of Tears’, works shown in the North Galleries in particular evoke states of bereavement, grief and abiding love.

The vast bronze sculpture entitled ‘The Mother (2017), relates to Emin’s public commission for Oslo’s Museum Island, which will be permanently installed beside the Edvard Much Museum from late spring 2020. A kneeling nude, gazing intently upon an absent form, a ghost perhaps, cradled in her palms, she is a philiosophical symbol of femininity and sanctuary. There are two further impassioned bronze sculptures exhibited throughout this vast space.

Our film captured below includes a question that I asked her, from the call out that I sent out a few weeks ago. This is Lisa Mitchell’s question and Emin addresses it with much passion.

I loved Tracey Emin’s work prior to meeting her today, now, if it’s possible I love it even more. If you do get a chance to visit this exhibition I strongly recommend it. It is open to the public from 6 February – 7 April 2019, White Cube, Bermondsey, London. Do go!

Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Oola Cristina

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the twelfth in our brand new series of interviews within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes…”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there is a portrait of Mont, seen through the eyes of Oola Cristina, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

“It is a difficult task to pick out mobile photography¯artwork that matters to me because there’s just too much that matters a great deal to me. I put off this task for weeks, at last sitting down on Thanksgiving to honor Joanne’s invitation, thank all these artists and bring them to your attention if you don’t already know their work.

My earliest memories of seeing mobile art were of a couple of images by Natali Prosvetova and Karen Divine. I don’t remember them specifically or I’d dig them up. What I do remember is that they were beautifully nuanced composites. It stopped me dead in my tracks seeing they were made by women using their iPhones. In 2009. My entire life changed afterwards. At this point, the folks below are artists whose continued commitment to mobile image making deeply nourishes and supports my own”.
