This is the artist's first solo show in Japan. But in it we find a laundry receipt (the basis for one of the works) to the name of “Olozco-sama”; reading it, we notice it dates from 2000, and that the hotel is far from Tokyo, in the southern island of Kyushu.
Tracey Emin, My Bed
British artist Tracey Emin presents her work 'My Bed' at Tate Britain's exhibition hall in London. The work was shown to the public eye in 1999 and is representative of her body of work. 'My bed' depicts the personal situation that Emin went through after a sentimental breakup. The artist talks about the singularities of this piece and its sense within her whole work.

It is displayed alongside six of the artist’s recent figure drawings, as well as two oil paintings by Francis Bacon selected by Emin. Her installation, as Bacon’s paintings, makes reference to the theme of the presence and the memory. Produced by: TATE
