I have never been to an exhibition of Trace Emin's work so I was really looking forward to seeing the retrospective of her work at the Hayward Gallery. I hadn't realise that she had made so may quilts and that they were so big. It took a considerable amount of time to look round the exhibition as she is well known for her use of text and I was compelled to read as much of it as I could. I found the exhibition thought provoking in a disturbing way and it played on my mind long after I had left.
