A piece of Tracey Emin’s artwork has been removed from 10 Downing Street following a request from the artist who branded the government “shameful” over Partygate.
Emin requested the removal of “More Passion” in January with an Instagram post saying “more passion is the last thing this present government needs”.
Now The Big Issue has learned the neon artwork has been moved to the ambassador’s residence in Paris, where it forms part of a display including works by women.
In January, Emin told her Instagram followers she was “in the process of requesting” the work be removed from Downing Street.
The day before Emin’s post, Boris Johnson was forced to apologise to the Queen after it emerged Downing Street staff had partied on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral.
