Tracey Emin / British Pavilion / 52nd Venice Biennale

Tracey Emin (born in London in 1963) is representing Britain at the 52nd Venice Biennale of Art. Her exhibition in the British Pavilion is entitled “Borrowed Light”, and includes work specially made for the Biennale. For Borrowed Light Emin uses a variety of media including embroidery, drawing, painting and neon. “From smudgy mono-prints to lightly painted oils and watercolours, Emin interprets moments in her life with an astonishing urgency, much of it describing how it feels to be a body taken over by feeling: exhilarating, frightening, embarrassing, confusing, disabling, empowering.” (from the PR). Venice, June 8, 2007.
