One of the most derided and variously received works of the 1990s, Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963–1995 was controversial because of its sexual subject matter, although, as the artist explained, that was only part of the concept of the piece. "Some I'd had a shag with in bed or against a wall. Some I had just slept with, like my grandma," the artist said. "I used to lay in her bed and hold her hand. We used to listen to the radio together and nod off to sleep. You don't do that with someone you don't love and don't care about." When the piece was destroyed in a warehouse fire in 2004, the public reaction was of mockery rather than sympathy.
