Art news: A major Tracey Emin exhibition opens at White Cube Bermondsey early next year. A Fortnight of Tears will take over the entire gallery and brings together large-scale sculpture, new painting, photography, film and neon text. Chronicling the most recent developments in Tracey Emin’s practice, these deeply personal works span themes of love, loss, grief and longing.
Three monumental, bronze sculptural figures, the largest Emin has produced to date, are 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.
White Cube will debut a new film by Emin as well as the early work How It Feels (1996), a candid and moving account of her abortions that changed her whole approach to making art.
Insomnia is a new photographic series of self-portraits taken by the artist on her iPhone capturing prolonged periods of restlessness and inner turmoil.
