Tracy Emin

Recommended Posts

Well there you have it.Tracy is really upset that people have paid out for supposed art that just turned out to be a load of old s***e!

I liked her manky old bed, though. Made me see past my philistine prejudice to the merits of my dog's bed - expressing her personality in the old Bonios put aside for a rainy day, the dirty socks of Mr B gleaned for their delicate scent, the odd half-chewed bone hidden under the bedding in case anyone nicked it.

Until Tracey's bed, I hadn't realized I had an original work of art in the kitchen. :)

She's probably thinking "don't they realize there's only room for so many of us in this game?"

Not to mention all the priceless works of art that your dog creates while out on walkies!

I read her autobiography. It was not interesting. I want my money back.

To be fair, she is possibly the most boring person who ever walked the earth. Her voice just kind of repels being listened to.

There's something about the gin-soaked, fag-breathed skank that I find kind of endearing and sexy.

******ing crap artist, though.

Funny how the crap Young British Artists suddenly hit the scene just before the rise of New Labour. I'm reminded of how the CIA once funded American abstract art in the 50s - so fearful were they that art could affect social and political change that making it meaningless rubbish seemed like a good idea. The social realism of socialist art was seen as dangerously stirring. Seemed Emin, Hirst, et. al perfectly represent the dumbing down and deskilling of British society under the New Labour project.

I remember when 'out there' band KLF decided to burn one million pounds and exhibit the ashes. Thinking it woud be a show against capiitalism but also double in value as modern art.

It was deemed worthless tat, and they spunked a mill.

All of this Turner Prize shite is piss-taking tat. It's some art student having a laugh with you - don;t buy it!!!

Our ex-neighbours,a really C/conservative couple,God fearing he a head prison officer,she an art teacher turned adviser to the county on art education absolutely shocked me on one occasion.It was a few years now and around the time of the pile of bricks - old tyre submarine.She thought it legitimate art,I thought it was taking the piss.I suppose these people just get drawn in by the nutters they mix with.

You become an art student only after you've exhausted alll avenues including the armed forces. Once the army have said no to you, only then may you enrole to do drawing as a full time school course.

Oh I disagree, Mr Bolton! Art is art! Some of it is even nice!

And aren't you some emergency backup rhythm guitar player! ;):blink:

Art appreciation is like politics - it's a game. It's very hard to play well, and there's money in it if you can.

Since that artwork got publicity, convinced the art world and made money, it's legitimate.

Warhol's now considered a genius, but his Campbell soup tins were considered to be taking the piss by many at the time.

I must say I'm with Brian Bedonde on this one.

I was amazed that there is actually an official committee which decress whether a Warhol is actually a Warhol. You have to sumit it to them and if they don't consider it legit they stamp the back of it with indellible ink so you can't sell it.

Thing is that a lot of it really is by Warhol, well made at the art studio he owned, so is perfedtly legit. It appears they are just controlling the maket to keep prices high. The weird thing is that the cretins who pay money for thyis crap actually listen to them.

The production of art and bank notes is astonishingly similar.

I hope to do a PhD thesis on the economic motive behind artistic careers one day. No-one ever talks about it, but it's obviously why Picasso went crap later in life, and explains why certain artistic careers went certain ways.

Contemporary art is mostly ********, by the way, but that doesn't mean it's easy to do. By "it" I mean producing works that are taken seriously by the art world. In some ways that's as hard as producing new mathematical ideas.

Throughout history, often the most celebrated artists of the day were not those who became historically important either to art historians or the wider public. I expect sentimental fluff like Vettriano or populist stuff like Banksy will outlive Emin, Hirst and co. Having something rather obvious to say will always trump having nothing to say.
