item code: 15185

Large 50 x 70 cm poster featuring Tracey Emin's 'Hate and Power Can Be a Terrible Thing', 2004. Image size 58.1 x 43.8cm

The original work itself is a textile-based work which hangs on the wall. Emin used an old pink wool blanket, cut in two and intersected with a cotton extension in the same shade of pink, as the basis for a landscape of text. The work is dominated by the words, ‘PERMISSION TO FIRE/ ENZINE’ in large black capitals. An English flag incorporating the Union Jack in one corner bisects these words on the upper half of the blanket and trails a section of rope terminating in a metal clip. Individual flowers cut out from floral print fabrics are appliquéd across the flag and the blanket.
