Gallery web tour shows Emin room
Tracey Emin
Emin explains emotions and concepts behind her work in the tour
A room full of Tracey Emin's artwork in the Tate Britain gallery can now be viewed online in an interactive tour.

It is the first in a series of displays of living artists' work on Tate Online.

Visitors can focus on individual works including the Kent artist's blanket, Hate and Power Can be a Terrible Thing, and interviews with Emin are included.

She said: "It was fun to do. It pleases me that people can be interactive. There's nothing difficult about my work and people get to hear it from me."

Web users can also hear Emin answer questions about her work, such as whether it is made to appeal to a female audience, and whether making the work is a cathartic experience.

There are also personal commentaries about the works by Emin who describes the concepts behind different pieces and the emotions that inspired them.

Jemima Rellie, head of digital programmes at Tate, said: "Tracey's room sets the standard for the series.

"It exemplifies the compelling opportunities that new technologies can provide for the public to enjoy art."
