Summary Provocative British artist Tracey Emin, environmental artist Carmel Wallace and 'reverse graffiti' artist Moose aka Paul Curtis are profiled. Music by Vida-Sunshyne.Fenella Kernebone converses with provocative British artist Tracey Emin who is in Sydney for the opening of her solo exhibition, 'Praying to a Different God'. The exhibition comprises embroideries, neons, smaller monoprints and drawings, allowing Australian audiences to experience the depth and unique beauty of Emin's art. Art Nation also follows environmental artist Carmel Wallace as she works on an ambitious project with her local community in Portland, Western Victoria. The project is thought-provoking, visually stunning and filled with historical references. A metal sculpture in the form of a ship's hull will be filled with huge sculptures of local endangered orchids and then burnt on the water as the community comes together as one. And we meet clean-freak English artist, Moose, AKA Paul Curtis, as he visits Australia to partake in some 'reverse graffiti' projects. Moose makes pictures by selectively cleaning and scrubbing dirty walls and footpaths so that words and images are formed by the clean areas. Vida-Sunshyne drops into the Art Nation studio to perform her track 'Where Did We Go Wrong?' with The Mista Savona Band
