Love her or loathe her, there's no denying that Tracey Emin knows a thing or two about makeovers, transforming mundane objects such as unmade beds into Turner-nominated masterpieces.Emin emerged in the late 1980s, during the "Young British Artists" movement, with controversial pieces such as "Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995," "My Bed" and "The Last Thing I Said To You is Don't Leave Me Here."
