Catalog of an exhibition held at White Cube and Lehmann Maupin, Hong Kong, March 21-May 21, 2016.
This joint exhibition takes place across both gallery spaces in Hong Kong and marks Emin's first solo presentation in Greater China. For this major project, Emin has envisaged a continuous exhibition of painting, embroidery, and neon across two spaces that reflects the diversity of her practice. A narrative running through the exhibition focuses on a large stone located in an olive grove just outside Emin's studio in the South of France. In a series of drawings Emin recollects a marriage ceremony that took place there last summer, where she wore a white shroud originally made to adorn her father's body at his funeral. For Emin, her union with the stone - an immovable and solid form - becomes a metaphor for stability and enduring love. This exhibition draws on and poignantly illustrates a self-reflexive moment in the artist's life, addressing the pain of loneliness, the complexity of desire, and the bitterness of separation and loss.
