Tracey Emin / Edvard Munch

The Loneliness of the Soul

ISBN: 9788293560364 (HB - E)

Tracey Emin (b. 1963) has long claimed that Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was the artist who had inspired her the most. In her formative years as an artist, it was the expressionism of Munch's paintings and his uncompromising will to explore the complexity and vulnerability of the human condition that attracted her. This book sheds light on the impact of Munch's art on Emin's artistic approach and her expressive repertoire in paintings, sculptures, textiles and neons. It explores the themes of grief, longing and loneliness, especially related to the ageing process and childlessness. This highlights the similarity between the two artists, as well as the difference between a female and male approach to difficult subjects related to the darker side of human existence, which has changed dramatically from the 20th century until today.

Kari J. Brandtzæg has been a curator at the Munch Museum since 2015, and was previously a curator at Norway's National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design and at KORO (Public Art Norway). Heidi Bale Amundsen (b. 1983) holds a PhD in art history from the University of Oslo. She is currently the Chair of the Norwegian Critics' Association and a writer for the art journal Kunstkritikk.
