True to candid form, Tracey Emin’s outing at Jay Jopling’s West End institution – the White Cube (opens in new tab) – is a lesson in artistic angst. An intimate depiction of Emin’s well-aired soul, Those Who Suffer Love, offers a self -styled exploration of ‘love, life and loss'.
While these chosen subjects may seem hopelessly broad, Emin still comes up with some stirring stuff. Set to coincide with the release of her latest book – One Thousand Drawings – the show (Emin's first in London for four years) consists predominantly of her often brutal artistic scrawlings.
Centering on an animation of a woman masturbating – drawn in Emin’s trademark left-handed style – the film was produced (in the words of the artist herself) as ‘a symbol of lust and loneliness'.
Emotionally elaborate the show may be, but at the heart of Emin’s latest airing is a strong sense of draughtsmanship.
