The Interview with Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin is a British artist who has courted controversy for the way she has made her private life public.

Her work has included a tent sewn with the names of everyone she had slept with and a display of her unmade bed complete with empty alcohol bottles, cigarette butts and other remnants of her life.

Her latest show includes an animation of a woman masturbating.

Carrie Gracie asks her what lies behind it all.
