Tracey Emin at the Musée d'Orsay
The fear of loving. Orsay through the eyes of Tracey Emin will be on display until Spetember 29, 2019, at the Musée d’Orsay (Paris). In this exhibition Tracey Emin selects rarely seen drawings from the Musée d’Orsay’s collection and presents them alongside her own works in order to explore the complexity, fragility and essential nature of love.
Drawing is what lies at the heart of Tracey Emin’s artistic creation. These drawings produced on different scales and different mediums will be brought together by the artist to express our anxiety at being human when we are confronted with this complex yet essential aspect of our lives: love. Love, humans, animals, objects, in an extensive experience of our humanity. The reality of our lives will be brought into questions through these drawings, perhaps the most fragile art form, the one that best reflects sentiments and intellect, as part of a scenography specially designed to reveal the unique beauty of these fragile objects.
