Shot in Niagara Falls, Canada, Niagra (1997) is a diaristic account of a holiday the artist took with three friends, following her breakup with Carl Freedman in England. The cold Canadian weather is captured, as is the immensity of the famous natural wonder. In this touching video, Emin reflects on emotional recovery and the warmth and beauty of friendship.
