Actions speak louder than words

Yesterday a good, long time friend and I went to see the Tracey Emin Love is What you Want exhibition at the Hayward. Neither of us being really familiar with her work but more the medias voice of her, we wandered around in delight, disgust, smiles and anger. Some may say that ‘but how is that art?’ others may say ‘it makes you feel something therefore it is art’, others may drool at her incredible blanket art…I think if I’m honest I was all of those people. I would highly recommend you go see it, not because I think it’s the best thing ever, but because it made me feel. I have a lot of respect for her, the things she communicates, her blatant and then cleverly hidden messages. Her skill, her variety, her life and enthusiasm but most of all her love for artistic expression.

  1. You posted this on the day I was at a wedding where one on of the family members of the bride was deaf. I got to watch as she spoke to him with her hands. It was beautiful, and this image captures that silent speak so nicely. Great work! xx
