    DESCRIPTION
    Inspired by the Paralympic values of Inspiration and Determination, Emin created 'Birds' as a love letter. Two small birds appear to kiss beneath the words ‘You inspire me with your determination And I love you’. Birds frequently appear in Emin’s drawings symbolising freedom and strength, whilst her use of handwritten text expresses personal thoughts and emotions. 'Birds' is an inspiring dedication to the Paralympic Games and athletes.
