Tracy Emin. Two weeks of tears

«Two weeks of tears"- a large exhibition located throughout the gallery, which includes sculptures, neon, painting, film, photographs and drawings. Each exhibit focuses on the artist’s own memories and emotions, Tracy Emin, resulting from loss, pathos, anger and love.

In his paintings, Emin expresses the joy and suffering inherent in human existence, from the consequences of sexual relations to the physical trauma of abortion and the recent death of her mother. There is inexhaustible energy in these works, since Emin powerfully enters the emotional turmoil through a freer but sure form of the sign configuration. Concentrating on her own body as a conductor of her feelings, the artist connects with the history of expressive configuration in art, from the moving realism of Kete Kolwitz to the modernist fear of Edvard Munch or the increased sexuality of female images of Egon Schiele.
