Painter and artist Tracey Emin did something most of us might contemplate if we were dared or living up to a bet with a nice price tag at the end – she lived in a locked room in a gallery for fourteen days, not just that but with nothing but a lot of empty canvases and art materials.  No entertainment like TV, radio, computer, cellphone, etc., things we might give our left hands to not lose for fourteen days now, and she did this in an attempt to reconcile herself with painting.  This was all documented through a series of wide-angle lenses embedded in the walls, too!  Emin could be watched, stark naked, shaking off her painting demons – that’s right she didn’t even bring clothes in there!  Starting by making images like the artists she admired (i.e. Egon Schiele, Edvard Munch, Yves Klein, to name a few), Emin’s two-week self-proclaimed art-therapy session resulted in a massive outpouring of autobiographical images and work.  Nothing short of the discovery of a style all her own, her masterpiece.  When all of this was said and done what happened you might be thinking?  The room was extracted in its entirety, and now exists as an installation work.  Pretty fucking awesome if you ask us!  We here at Nakid salute Tracy Emin and her undying strive for self-expression, the commitment to her art form, and the sheer mental strength she exhibited that inspires us all to take chances and step outside the box!  Here is some of the work she created and the room itself!
