Cornelia Parker

Nominated for the Turner Prize in 1997, Cornelia Parker is perhaps best-known for a number of large-scale installations including Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View, and The Maybe, a collaboration with actress Tilda Swinton, who appeared sleeping inside a vitrine at the Serpentine Gallery. Fascinated with processes in the world that mimic cartoon ‘deaths’ – steamrollering, shooting full of holes, falling from cliffs and explosions, Parker’s work triggers cultural metaphors and personal associations, transforming the most ordinary objects into something compelling and extraordinary.
