‘An Insane Desire for You’, an exhibition by Tracey Emin about women, desire and power

Entrada de Art Projects Ibiza


INAUGURATION: 17th of June 2019
HOUR: 6 pm
PLACE: Art Projects Ibiza & Lune Rouge

Art Projects Ibiza and Lune Rouge present ‘An Insane Desire for You‘ an individual exhibition in Ibiza that includes new work from Tracey Emin in collaboration with the Xavier Hufkens gallery in Brussels. The art exhibition can be visited at Art Projects Ibiza and Lune Rouge from June 17 to October 1. In it, the artist exhibits explicit but subtle and mysterious nuances about the female body, power and desire. The works of Tracey Emin are a declaration of intentions towards contemporary society today.

Since the early 90s, Tracey Emin has developed a work that covers all forms of artistic expression, including painting, drawing, video, photography, installation, sculpture and neon works. Although when she was starting out, Emin was included in the so-called generation of the Young British Artists (YBA), the highly autobiographical nature of her work distinguishes her from the usual artistic trends of the 80s and 90s. Emin is well known for her frank and confessional style, as well as for transforming her inner emotional and psychological world, drawing from personal experiences, memories and feelings. Her artistic work is very intimate, but at the same time, profoundly universal. The exhibition ‘An Insane Desire for You’ is a sincere revelation in which she shows the main controversies of her life, without getting carried away by sentimentality.

Tracey Emin (London, 1963) lives and works between London, New York and the south of France. She has exhibited her work in cities around the world, including solo and group exhibitions in the Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Australia and America. In 2007, she represented Great Britain at the 52nd Venice Biennial. That same year, she was made Royal Academician and received an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art, a PhD in Letters from the University of Kent and a PhD in philosophy from the London Metropolitan University. Since 2011, she has been appointed Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy and Queen Elizabeth II appointed her Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, for her enormous contribution to the visual arts.
