Among Tracey Emin’s seemingly countless works in neon, created in her own handwriting is the work ‘Is Legal Sex Anal?/ Is Anal Sex Legal? which are pink neon signs, spelling out the words of the titles. They are mounted on the wall, above head height, either individually or together. Much of Emin’s work describes sex graphically in words and images, The self-styled bad girl of British art often discusses her relationship history, and who she’s slept with – which featured in the artist’s work ‘Everyone I’ve Ever Slept With – 1963-1995’ – which was a tent embroidered with all the names of the artist’s conquests. But in this instance, we’re happy the artist is posing the work as a question.
