It seems as if I am only going to make posts about Tracy Emin. Here is the most recent news of Emin’s escapades .
“Artist Tracey Emin has spent millions on buying a large part of a historic quarter of East London, in an attempt to halt the tide of commercial and corporate development of the area, reports Vanessa Thorpe in The Guardian.
Despite the fact Emin calls it a ‘stupid project, in a way,’ her total investment will amount to just under four million pounds (eight million dollars), half of which will be spent on returning a former weaving works, known as Tenter Ground, in Spitalfields, to its original form. She plans to use the area as a vast studio when restoration work is complete in two and a half years’ time. ‘It is a listed building, and it is important to me to keep artists working in the area and keep it in artisan use.
And also not to have it turned into a hotel or restaurant,’ she told The Observer.
