This work of art represents the state of a women who has not left her bed for several days due to suicidal depression brought on by relationship difficulties. Empty liquor bottles, condoms, slippers, and underwear are just a few of Tracey Emin’s possessions featured in the piece. Created in 1998, the piece was first exhibited at the Tate Gallery in 1999 for the Turner Prize. Although it didn’t win, it attracted notoriety and ended up being auctioned earlier this year for $3,947,992.
