Catalogue Note

"Amongst her oeuvre, Emin’s Neon Signs are language at its barest and boldest… Emin’s Neons do not offer generalised philosophical phrases or curious non sequiturs. Instead, most take the form of an utterance, which are almost heard as voices by the gallery-goer as much as they are seen" (Cliff Lausen cited in: Exh. Cat., London, Hayward Gallery, Love is what you want, 2011, p. 15).
