For some years contemporary artist Cornelia Parker’s work has been concerned with formalising things beyond our control, containing the volatile and making it into something that is quiet and contemplative like the ‘eye of the storm’. She is fascinated with processes in the world that mimic cartoon ‘deaths’ – steamrollering, shooting full of holes, falling from cliffs and explosions. Through a combination of visual and verbal allusions her work triggers cultural metaphors and personal associations, which allow the viewer to witness the transformation of the most ordinary objects into something compelling and extraordinary.
Cornelia Parker has had numerous solo exhibitions in the UK and internationally including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Whitworth, Manchester, The British Library, London, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, and Baltic, Gateshead. Parker’s work is represented in many international collections including Tate, London, The Caixa Foundation, Barcelona/Madrid, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Met, New York. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1997, elected to the Royal Academy in 2009, awarded an OBE in 2010, won Apollo Magazine Artist of the Year Award in 2016, and was named Official Artist of the 2017 UK General Election.
