To Tracy

To follow up on the long text I posted below on feminist art and self-portraiture, I thought I’d share my July 2009 picture which, by accident, as sometimes happens, became an ode to Tracy Emin’s My Bed.

I remember when I was at the University of Brighton and Emin came to talk to us, and she told us how absolutely furious she was when a gallery had bought her bed piece and installed it themselves in their gallery. Her bed was hers to install, whomever owned it.
