Tracey Emin installation at Kestner Gesellschaft


4 November 2023 - 18 February 2024

Hanover, Germany

Tracey Emin’s neon work Its different when you Are in Love (2016) is on loan at the Kestner Gesellschaft building in Hanover, Germany. The installation will adorn the museum’s facade from early November 2023 to February 2024.

The artist began creating her neon works in the 1990s, each bearing her recognisable slanted handwriting. Elevating her fleeting thoughts and feelings as aphorisms, the neons impart haunting and existential messages intended for strangers.

‘Neon is emotional for everybody […] That’s why neon is at fun fairs, casinos, red light districts and bars. It’s also to do with the way it electronically pulsates around the glass, it creates a feel-good factor. Neon can help people who suffer from depression.’ – Tracey Emin, 2014
