Artist Tracey Emin has asked for one of her pieces to be removed from Number 10 Downing Street, saying “the current situation is shameful.”
The Margate-based artist donated a neon artwork saying “More Passion” to the Government Art Collection, but said: “I feel like More Passion is the last thing this present government needs.”
In a post on Instagram, Emin said she was in the process of requesting that the piece be removed.
Her newest venture will see her setting up an art school inside a former bathhouse and mortuary in Margate.
The Big Issue has approached Emin, Number 10 and the Government Art Collection for comment.
