I Need Art Like I Need God', London 1998 (another from the edition illustrated in colour, pp.38-39, cover). NOTES 'Naked Photos - Life Model Goes Mad' documents the performance/installation 'Exorcism of the Last Painting I Ever Made' [see lot 31], "a gallery presentation of her studio: sketches, paintings, texts, everyday odds and ends, photos, souvenirs, a cassette recorder, books, a bed and underwear on clothes lines. [...] Emin's exhibitionism is less embarassing than it is stimulating and constructive. Memorable and intense, her work poses the question of the meaning of art today." (B. Riemschneider and U. Grosenick (eds.), 'Art at the Turn of the Millennium', Cologne 1999, p.146.).
