The problem with Emin's statements is that they propagate damaging myths: about what it is to be an artist, a mother, a woman. And as Virginia Woolf tells us, it far harder to kill a phantom than a reality. It's like looking for nits, or searching for proof for jealousy: resolution can only be reached by discovering what we don't want to be true and in the absence of that we are condemned to continue the search.
The Chelsea bunch are now all back in London and with the return of series 8 comes the return of our very own heartthrob, Andy Jordan. He makes it clear to, well, everyone that he is "gutted" that Louise has found herself a new beau.
I remain stuck in flat-moving-limbo-hell. In February, I agreed a price of £343,500 for a 400 square foot flat in the dodgy end of Islington, London N7. And because of some diabolically tedious legal wrangling over a lease, The Vendor and I have not been able to exchange contracts...
Jon Stewart is one of the most revered television personalities in America and judging by the reception he received at the Debate Gala of his new film, Rosewater, he's held in equally as high regard this side of the Atlantic.
I am proud to present the first UK exhibition of the photography of Mikhail Baryshnikov, world famous dancer, choreographer, actor and accomplished photographer. 'Dancing Away' is a visual representation of Baryshnikov's very personal interpretation of dance and performance; an expert dancer's reflection upon his own metier.
During my time in the capital I have become increasingly aware that we really do have it all, world-class museums and galleries, diverse restaurants, outstanding architecture and whimsical bars.
Smiling at me from across his dining table, Emile Cohen serves the most important reason for understanding the Jewish Iraqi experience. Last summer's Gaza war and the ongoing situation with ISIS in Iraq/Syria- means we are in a period of profound regional transformation, some of which, threatens the existence of minorities in the Middle East.
I've experienced homophobic abuse in London three times. The first happened when I was 22, and I was caught in a heaving Friday night crowd outside Tottenham Court Road tube station. Across a sea of faces, I made eye contact with a young, white male with a shaven head. He snarled at me: 'fucking poof!'
Are you thinking about moving to London? Well, it's an amazing city but you do have to be ready to make some big changes in your life to adjust to living here. Whether you're a country bumpkin from the UK or travelling to start a new life here from overseas there are a few things you should know, straight up.
Larraz encourages his observers to decode the art that stands before their eyes, believing it is the artist whom should be "revealing that which reality conceals". In fulfilling this responsibility, Larraz experiments with styles to create works that are incredibly postmodern.
Italy, in my humble opinion, is one of the most glorious countries in the world. Florence and its rich artistic history. The winding streets and hidden underground wonders of Naples. Cinque Terre and all its coloured, seaside glory. The iconic rolling hills and olive groves of Tuscany. Venice, a mystic floating playground. Stepping back in time in Sicily. Rome, just Rome.
Here in the UK, speaking with people who have had the unfortunate experience of being homeless has highlighted one major theme - being homeless has little to do with race, religion or education.
I thought it good of me to collect Anna - unfortunately, this gallant gesture was the undoing of our fledgling relationship. When I pulled up at Ladywell station, she was under a shelter holding a large gift box. I dashed through the rain with my head bowed.
If you go down to Clapham North today, you're sure of a big surprise: in the form of multi Tony award winning musical, Damn Yankees. A show packed full of certifiable Broadway classics including "Whatever Lola Wants", "Heart" and "Six Months Out of Every Year".
Firstly, it has the attitude, plus an enviable diversity of culture which is delivering its own unique and particular breed of new mobile apps. We're already working with a couple of home grown New York apps businesses such as Gilt, the designer sales shopping app.
If you often feel the need to get away, only to realise that you don't have the funds...you are not alone. Despite a recent survey finding Brits now more likely to holiday abroad, many of us are still feeling the effects of the economic slump and are staying put this year.
