On Air: Tracey Emin - I Listen To The Ocean And All I Hear Is You

Tracey Emin’s work depicts the words I Listen To The Ocean And All I Hear Is You in a gentle neon blue, and captures the form of the artist’s own handwriting. Growing up in the British seaside town of Margate, Emin would have gazed over the sea regularly and this work powerfully conjures an essence of the memories that might resonate within the artist’s mind. Her work often engages with the legacy of feminism, where at times the sea has been used as a symbol of freedom. -> Homepage of the Artist: www.traceyeminstudio.com -> Tracey Emin on Wikipedia From the Sedition Selection
