Tracey Emin delivers an "emotional timebomb" in London exhibition

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British artist Tracey Emin is unleashing an "emotional timebomb" at her latest exhibition, homing in on what is important to her as she faces what she calls the third stage of her life.

Best known to many for the then sensational creation "My Bed" some 20 years ago - a bed surrounded by and covered with discarded condoms, stained sheets, empty bottles of alcohol - Emin's new show "A Fortnight of Tears" includes paintings, sculptures, neon and photography.

But she rejected the suggestion that works for this exhibition - touching on insomnia, sexual relationships and abortion as she has done throughout her career - have been produced as a response to the growth of the Me Too movement about sexual harassment.

The exhibition at London's White Cube gallery opens on Wednesday (February 6) and runs until April 7.
