TRACY EMIN // EVERYONE I HAVE EVER SLEPT WITH 1995

In 'Everyone I have ever slept with' Tracey Emin embroiders the name of everyone she has ever slept with in a literal and sexual sense. She uses embroidery, a traditional female process, to emphasise the femininity of the sculpture and to challenge what society assumes from the art works title.

"Some I'd had a shag with in bed or against a wall some I had just slept with, like my grandma. I used to lay in her bed and hold her hand. We used to listen to the radio together and nod off to sleep. You don't do that with someone you don't love and don't care about"
