Tracey Emin, Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995, 1995

Tracey Emin shot to fame in the 1990s with such controversial works as My Bed and Everyone I Have Ever Slept With, a small tent appliqued with the names of the 102 people (not all of them sexual partners) she had ever shared a bed with.

The tent was first shown in Minky Manky, a 1995 exhibition at the South London Gallery that also included works by Sarah Lucas, Gilbert & George and Damien Hirst. Initially criticised, it is now regarded as one of Emin’s seminal works.

In 2004, the tent was destroyed in a warehouse fire, along with more than 100 other works belonging to Charles Saatchi. Emin has refused to recreate the piece, explaining that ‘my work is very personal, so I can’t create that emotion again—it’s impossible.’
