Tracey Emin Hearts Peninsula
The work, My Heart is with You Always, will be on show on the facade of The Peninsula's famous Tower nightly, from 7:00 pm to 12:00 am, from 8 to 18 May, in the run up to the second Art Basel Hong Kong, from 15 to 18 May 2014. One of the world's renowned contemporary artists, and a leading light of the YBAs (young British artists) Emin has created a moving image based on one of her famous neon artworks, featuring her signature handwritten style. My Heart is with You Always will be visible from across Victoria Harbour, creating a focal point along the city's already dramatic skyline.
The project follows on from Emin's highly acclaimed I Promise to Love You 2013, which lit up the billboards of New York's Times Square, with digitally rendered neon Valentine's messages. Tracey Emin uses her life events as inspiration for works that reveal her hopes, fears, failures and successes. The neon artwork which the artist has transformed into a moving animation, My Heart is with You Always, is a beautiful example of this, suggestive of the opening line of a poem or the sign-off of a love letter, rendered in bright red and pink neon.
