Love is what you want represents the first major London survey of the work of Tracey Emin, Britain's favourite bad girl of art. Spanning her entire career, the exhibition combines early, seldom-seen pieces with major installations, and features a new series of outdoor sculptures created especially for the Hayward.Occupying both floors of the gallery as well as the two outside display spaces, this exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to see the range of Emin's work, and to explore her development through photography, sculpture, textiles, drawing and video.Notorious for the confrontational sexuality of her work, Emin's 'personal political' feminist agenda is only part of the story. Although confession is a recurring theme of the show, this takes various forms, from works that are whimsical or witty to those exploring spirituality or cultural identity and those designed to shock.
