Artist Tracey Emin is going back to her roots in Kent... selling her artwork from the back of a Vauxhall at a boot fair in Folkestone.

The Margate artist is joining fellow professionals preparing to sell limited edition works at the Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair as part of the opening weekend of the Folkestone Triennial on August 30.

Emin will be creating limited edition embroidered artworks exclusively for the fair, as well as posters and sculptures, with work ranging from £50 to £800.

She will be joined by other renowned artists Gavin Turk, Mat Collishaw, Chris Barnes and James Unsworth among others in the sale.

The fair will also be championing Folkestone-based artists.

The Vauxhall Art Cargo - a specially customised Vauxhall Vivaro van packed full of art - will offer visitors the chance to get stuck in to the process as well as buying art!
