Fascinated with processes in the world that mimic cartoon ‘deaths’ – steamrollering, shooting full of holes, falling from cliffs and explosions, London-based artist Cornelia Parker is concerned with formalizing things beyond our control, containing the volatile and making it into something that is quiet and contemplative like the ‘eye of the storm’. Through a combination of visual and verbal allusions her work triggers cultural metaphors and personal associations, her work allow the viewer to witness the transformation of the most ordinary objects into something compelling and extraordinary. In her 35-year career, Parker has exhibited extensively at major galleries and museums around the world, has been collected by numerous private, corporate, and public organizations including Deutsche Bank, Unilever, The Arts Council of Great Britain, The British Council, the British Museum, The Tate Gallery, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Museum of Modern Art New York and The Yale Center for British Art, USA. The Turner Prize nominee is also a frequent and popular guest on BBC radio and television.
