Sexy Art

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

WHILE IN THE TATE  SOME YEAR AGO,  MY MIND STUFFED WITH ART, BUT MY HEART EMPTY, I CAME ACROSS A PIECE THAT HAS SINCE BEEN MY FAVORITE.  MY BED, CREATED BY TRACEY EMIN.  WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS PIECE IS ITS CONFESSIONAL VALUE. THERE IS A SHIFT FROM ARTISTS GIVING A PIECE OF THEMSELVES, AND GIVING THEMSELVES TOTALLY TO ART.  EMINS’ BED WAS A BOLD MOVEMENT TOWARDS  EXPLOSIVE FEMALE SEXUALITY AND DECONSTRUCTION OF THE STEREOTYPE OF THE FEMALE HOUSEKEEPER.  I FIND THIS PIECE SEXIER THAN NUDE IMAGES BECAUSE IT SHARES MORE INTIMACY WITH THE VIEWER.
