Additional Information

Made in close collaboration with the artist, and incorporating perspectives from a wide range of contributors, this stunning paperback exhibition book is an absorbing survey that encompasses all aspects of Parker’s career, from the late 1970s to the new work being made today.

Cornelia Parker’s art is about destruction, resurrection and transformation. Always driven by curiosity, she reconfigures familiar objects to question our relationship with the world, and engage with the important issues of our time, be it violence, ecology or human rights. No other contemporary artist has worked so closely with such a wide range of individuals, groups and institutions: the British Army, The Royal Mint, Abbey Road Studios, prisoners, school children, The Daughters of the Republic of Texas, whistleblowers and the UK Parliament among many others.

Charting Cornelia Parker’s career to date, from her early work in the 1980s, to the iconic installations Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View, Perpetual Canon, and the immersive War Room, to her new work, including Island and Flag, the book explores the full range of her practice, from her monumental collective embroidery Magna Carta (An Embroidery), as well as her films and a wealth of her innovative drawings, prints and photographs. Featuring a new, extended interview with Tate Britain Director of Exhibitions and Displays Andrea Schlieker, as well as insights and reflections from a selection of writers and collaborators, Cornelia Parker is an authoritative and captivating survey of one of Britain’s best-loved and most acclaimed artists.

Andrea Schlieker, Director of Exhibitions and Displays at Tate Britain, a lecturer and writer. She conceived the Folkestone Triennial, the UK's largest exhibition of newly commissioned works in the public realm by acclaimed and emerging international artists.
