Meaning & Analysis

Small illustrations of lively bunny rabbits are a subject we would expect from the world of children’s books written by the likes of Beatrix Potter. However, Emin’s See How They Grow transforms the innocent subject into one that is sexually suggestive and crude.

This editioned etching uses the animated rabbit to make a tongue-in-cheek dig at the penises she represents. A recurring theme in Emin’s body of prints, she often depicts the phallus severed from the body and a being with a life of its own. In this particular etching, Emin’s lewd bunny rabbit waters two penises with her watering can, marvelling at their growth. The work is characteristically witty, and Emin urges her viewers to not take sex - or her art - too seriously.
