Among the YBA’s most celebrated names, Tracey Emin has established herself as an artist not only of great depth, but of variety. Among others, her works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Goetz Collection in Munich. Most known for her autobiographical work which focuses on self-interrogation, her most celebrated and controversial pieces are those which examine turbulent childhood experiences and sexual history. This image was originally developed by Emin as a limited edition temporary tattoo to be distributed at the British Consulate as a gift to the attendees of the 2007 Venice Biennale. A symbol of the rebellion at the heart of the YBA movement, this work speaks to Emin’s wicked humour and impertinence towards authority.
