Tracey Emin ‘wanted to punch a child molester’


Artist Tracey Emin says, “women should not be ashamed to say something at the time” if they are sexually harassed or assaulted.

Emin has said a Radio 4 Today programme had not been molested by a woman, saying: “I took my fist and I was going for a handful of them, caused a scene like that.

“I cried and said to everyone that the person who had done a lot for their humiliation and embarrassment.”

He added: “I don’t think that will be doing it again in a hurry.”

Emin, who claims he was sexually assaulted by a woman at a party, he said that he wanted to make the point and that’s not always the women being harassed by men.

“Very often, for all, make accusations and say things to men, but it happens with everyone, in many different circumstances and people do not seem to see the whole picture, and that harassment is, in reality, bullying in a lot of cases,” Emin has said.’Stupid island’

The artist has just unveiled one of its famous neon installations outside the Eurostar arrivals in St Pancras international station in London.

20 metres sign – which reads: “I Want My Time With You’ – it was hanging from the roof of the building.

It is the largest piece of text Emin has ever created.


She said she wanted to send a message of “love” and one on Brexit.

“It’s not pushing people away, it’s not pushing all of Britain’s distance, is not great Britain to be degraded to some small demented island in the North Sea,” he said.

“These are people who, like me, saying:” I am very proud to be British and I am very proud to be part of Europe, and I’d like to stay that way.”

Emin also recently placed dozens of life-size bronze birds lamp-post, cornices, window sills, and portals in the business district of Sydney.

The birds are hybrid creatures, inspired by Australia’s history of migration.
