This Room Is Closed is a signed etching by Tracey Emin, executed in 2013 and released in an edition of 200. At the centre of the composition is what appears to be two female figures sat at a table, as though denying entry to this closed room. Underneath the centrally-placed illustration are the words from which the etching takes its title. Beneath the print is Emin’s signature and the edition number of the print in the bottom right, as is typical of Emin’s prints.
Moody and angsty, The Room Is Closed is a witty print about having your access denied. The snarky look on the two female figures sat at the table gives the print its sulky overtone. With their elbows haphazardly etched onto the table, and the figure on the right’s downturned mouth, the work makes a mockery of these two unfriendly figures. Like the majority of Emin’s oeuvre, the work is likely based on an experience Emin has had in her life, making these subjects all the more pitiable.
