Tracey Emin's artwork to be auctioned on Tuesday

Tracey Emin's artwork 'My Bed' is expected to sell for between £800,000 and £1.2 million at auction on Tuesday. Art collector Charles Saatchi paid £150,000 for the piece of work in 2000.

Emin says she has flashbacks every time she sees the bed. "Even the smell and everything, it's all still there for me. It's very, very evocative. Except it's like waking up, I wouldn't say a nightmare, but definitely ... it's really strange."
