13 June—19 June 2016
Tracey Emin presents The more of you the more I love you (2016), a new large scale neon installation.
Since 1995 Emin has produced neon artworks based on her own handwriting to express her inner thoughts in a confessional tone. Emin’s use of neon is inspired by her childhood memories of the neon illuminations in the English seaside town of Margate where she grew up.
In her work Emin harnesses the poignancy of emotionally wrought yet ambiguous sentences to reveal the universality of their message. She views these neon phrases as missives – snippets of moments, which could be read as thoughts of someone, or for someone.
In 2013 a retrospective of Emin’s neon work went on view at MOCA in North Miami, demonstrating the central importance neon holds in her practice.
