London – “More Passion”, a neon installation by Tracey Emin now has pride of place in one of the most prestigious settings inside No 10, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal. It now hangs outside the Terracotta Room, lighting up a dark hallway and making the entrance to the room, according to one insider, “look like a nightclub”.
Tracey Emin, who was in Downing Street last week putting the finishing touches to the installation, was invited to contribute a piece by David Cameron, a big fan of her work, last year. A No 10 spokeswoman confirmed that “More Passion” had been donated to the Government Art Collection by Emin, 48, a former enfant terrible of the art world who is now a Royal Academician. Similar Emin installations regularly fetch tens of thousands of pounds.
