This etching was executed by Young British Artist, Tracey Emin, in 2011. At the centre of the composition, Emin has sketchily rendered an aeroplane flying through the sky. The body of this aeroplane points towards the words from which this work takes its title, written in Emin’s distinctive handwriting.
This delicate etching of an aeroplane soaring through the sky is an instance of Emin’s romanticism of travelling and removing oneself from the everyday to “another place”. As much as Emin has been committed to London and Margate in her life and work, she has always seen something magical in travelling and its ability to connect people. This theme came to its apex in Emin’s 2018 installation at St Pancras International Station, I Want My Time With You, and reveals Emin’s unique ability to make the mundane intensely romantic.
