Among the YBA’s most celebrated names, Tracey Emin has established herself as an artist not only of great depth, but of variety. Most known for her autobiographical work which focuses on self-interrogation, her most celebrated and controversial pieces are those which examine turbulent childhood experiences and sexual history. She has described her work as confessional, labelling her work with titles which often convey exactly what the viewer is intended to see. Here, examining the emotional trials of relationship with a charming stylistic naivety, Emin continues the narrative established in the print Closed. In even less ambiguous fashion, You Forgot Who You Are assumes a double entendre, with the artist speaking to both herself and the viewer. The statement asks of each whether it is intended as a form of comfort or of gaslighting.

The Artist

Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin is an English contemporary artist who was born in 1963. She works across a variety of mediums such as needlework, painting, sculptures, video, photography, drawing and installation. The content of Emin’s work often reflects elements of the expressive and confessional and her installations are bold and profound, as she is unafraid to depict aspects of her own life to form her compositions. At the Royal Academy of Arts, Emin offers advice and talks to developing artists in her position as Professor of Drawing. She is sometimes considered in relation to the Stuckism group, which was founded by her previous partner, Billy Childish, after suggesting that Emin was stuck in the past.
