Tracey Emin: Praying to a Different God

10 November 2010 - 31 March 2011
61 Ocean Street, Woollahra NSW 2011


Making figures within a landscape, mental landscapes, where the figure in only part of what’s happening – that’s where this new work is different. Previously the figure would dominate the whole picture plane, the self taking over the mental space. Now there’s an acceptance that the rest of the world has to come in - as when we dream, there is no control where our minds go, we are just taken, and the figure is infinitely small in comparison to the landscape of our dreams.
