Now MATTER HOW PERSONAL HER WORK IS
There are still some astonishing things to learn about Tracey Emin:
Whe won a place at Maidstone College of Art, got a first, and went to the Royal College of Art. When she left, she had a relationship that resulted in two abortions. The first, in 1990, was particularly traumatic. Returning to hospital the following week because she felt so ill, a foetus slithered down her thigh as she got out of the cab. It was a twin that had been missed by the doctors. Emin destroyed all her work and gave up art altogether.
