Sarah Douglas reports on Tracey Emin’s bespoke art works available at Frieze in a little more than a week. The artist will be Lehmann Maupin Gallery’s booth to get the answers to a battery of personal and, occasionally, explicit queries:
Completing Emin’s questionnaire, and shelling out £65,000 ($104,129), will get collectors a customized version of one of Emin’s signature neon text pieces, previous examples of which have featured such titillating phrases as “People like you need to fuck people like me.” (A £10,000 ($16,000) deposit buys a drawing that serves as a study.) Usually Emin’s neons are in editions of three, but these will — suitably, since they are inspired by the proclivities of individuals – be unique.
