The Vagina Analogues

Tracey Emin:
She said: 'In respect of the emergence of forgeries on the market I'm seriously concerned that the forgeries and fakes are damaging to myself as well as collectors and investors in my work.

'From my perspective inferior artworks produced in my name damaged my reputation and credibility as an artist.

'My artwork is deeply personal and comes from my heart. It hurts and distresses me to see these fakes and forgeries that have no regard, respect or understanding of what I do.

'With a view to others, I'm upset and distressed to think people have been conned.'
It's distressing that some forger might fabricate some deeply personal object using Tracey Emin's name without being her deeply personal employee. Investors beware! Will I next be forced to doubt exactly who and what has been in Tracey Emin's vagina?

Judging by the results of a google image search, her biggest contribution to art is the sneering duckface; A look she appears to don for every single photo of her ever taken. I bet she wears it in her sleep just in case.

She does entertaining interviews. SO DID HITLER.

I laughed when Charles Saatchi's investment portfolio (including Emin's tent) was destroyed in a fire. I am a philistine and should go back to Philistinia.

Substance McGravitas said...

Another good interview about her shit art.

Smut Clyde said...

I got this far into the interview:
Tracey Emin's (bottom, photo:

and ran screaming from the room.

Substance McGravitas said...

Both interviewer and interviewee were on the verge of that.

You can still be a Young British Artist at 47?

Substance McGravitas said...

Britain's best days are behind her.

Regarding the fire this is pretty funny.

Smut Clyde said...

My artwork is deeply personal and comes from my heart.

Yet everyone gets snippy when Gunther von Hagens tries to make deeply personal artwork from someone else's heart. DOUBLE STANDARDS.

The presence of Uri Geller gives the story all of the gravitas it needs.

Art started going downhill the minute we allowed artists to look for inspiration outside of the Bible.

The presence of Uri Geller

When when WHEN did they allow charlatans access to the art world?

Kathleen said...

who is this? is this like the Canadian Thomas Kincade?

Substance McGravitas said...

No Canadians in this story. Or in most interesting stories. Strange, huh?

Deceptive titling: I was hoping for a Judy Chicago rip-off.

a Judy Chicago rip-off.

I for one am freaked out by the very concept of Brazilian waxing.

Substance McGravitas said...

Deceptive titling:

Emin wouldn't be Emin if you weren't concerned about tent-pitching.

mikey said...

Brazilian waning, on the other hand, is ok.

I keep seeing her name and thinking she is related to Eminem...
