Catalogue Note

“I love writing. I think every artist has a backbone to what they do. For some it could be photography, painting, the ability to make a formal sculpture stand, but for me it’s writing” (Tracey Emin cited in: Exh. Cat., London, Hayward Gallery, Tracy Emin: Love is What you Want, 2011, p. 24).
