Tracey Emin’s first Scottish show since 2008, I Lay Here For You will offer an intimate encounter with love, loss, grief and longing set against the domestic architecture and informal woodland of Jupiter Artland. Viewed within the context of a home, the work is imbued with connotations of both warmth and vulnerability, resonating with Tracey Emin’s belief of the ‘personal as political’.
Tracey Emin’s participation in Jupiter Artland’s 2022 season begins with the unveiling of a large bronze sculpture I Lay Here For You, a naked female figure scaled up from a hand-sized clay figurine, pressed and shaped in the artist’s hand. Lying in repose within the woodland at Jupiter Artland, the figure rests in the landscape on its own terms, creating a dialogue with Tracey Emin’s new paintings and drawings presented across Jupiter Artland’s spaces.
