In this work Emin recalls daydreaming while staring out a window. In her own handwriting, she recounts her memories of a first meeting with someone,. By laying the text out somewhat unusually in four sections, an image of a window frame, or perhaps a cross, is created by the negative space.
‘Other Men’s Flowers’ is a portfolio of text-based prints by fifteen London artists curated by Joshua Compston (1970-96) and published by The Paragon Press. Compston took the title, ‘Other Men’s Flowers’, from an anthology of wartime poetry compiled by Field-Marshal Viscount Wavell (1883-1950).
