Tracy Emin - various works / various means
Three different works by Emin were damaged over the course of her 2008 exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
a) “Self Portrait: Bath” sustained damages when a piece of barbed wire was caught on the jumper of a museum visitor, who proceeded to drag the work, breaking a piece of neon.
b) “Feeling Pregnant III” sustained minor damage when a visitor backed into its stand and knocked it to the floor.
c) “My Uncle Colin” sustained damages when gallery staff accidentally punched a series of holes into the work while hanging it.
