Charles Thomson. Sir Nicholas Serota Makes an Acquisitions Decision, 2000.
Signature piece of the Stuckism art movement, for its opposition to conceptual art. It depicts Sir Nicholas Serota, Director of the Tate Gallery, and the usual chairman of the Turner Prize jury. “Emin” satirises Young British Artist Tracey Emin’s installation My Bed which she exhibited in 1999 as a Turner Prize nominee.
The bedsheets were stained with bodily secretions and the floor had items from the artist’s room (such as condoms, a pair of knickers with menstrual period stains, other detritus, and functional, everyday objects, including a pair of slippers). The bed was presented as it had been when Emin had not got up from it for several days due to suicidal depression brought on by relationship difficulties.
“My painting of Serota has become an icon of the Stuckist movement because it states our position in art,” said Thompson. “We are for new figurative painting and anti stale, old conceptual art.”
