My Bed, by British artist Tracey Emin, has gone on display at Tate Britain for the first time in 15 years. She had a breakdown in 1998 and stayed in bed for 4 days. She got up to have a glass of water and when she returned she was struck by the bed as a symbol of the decay of her life.
Emin would have liked the work to have a permanent home at Tate Britain but the gallery was outbid at the auction where it sold for £2.54m. The work was bought by the German businessman and collector Count Christian Duerckheim, who has loaned the artwork to the Tate for at least the next 10 years.
