Cornelia Parker: Perpetual CanonCornelia Parker: Perpetual Canon

Published by Kerber.
Edited by Andrea Jahn.

In 1995 Cornelia Parker put actress Tilda Swinton in a vitrine, sleeping on display at London's Serpentine Gallery. (Unlike Damien Hirst's lamb under glass there, the artist had the subject's full cooperation.) Parker's brand of conceptual art takes iconic and historically powerful objects, such as a feather from Freud's pillow or soil removed from under the Leaning Tower of Pisa to prevent its collapse, and transforms it into art that both resonates with that power and becomes something new--and often beautiful. In the case of the Pisa dirt, the suspended clumps, exposed to air for the first time in 800 years, float as if released from gravity. Perpetual Canon features Parker's installation in the historic cupola hall of the Wrttembergischer Kunstverein art center in Stuttgart, along with a number of her works on paper. In this collection, the artist again and again unearths the subconscious within the familiar and the clich™, causing us to see them anew. Whether drawing out a filament from dental-filling gold or splitting objects with the same guillotine used to decapitate Marie Antoinette, Parker constantly challenges what we know and what we think we know.

Cornelia Parker

Published by Hopefulmonster.
Essays by Iwona Blazwick and Ewa Lajer-Burcharth.

Through her sculptures and installations, British artist Cornelia Parker explores the metaphysical dimensions of objects, with both a serious eye toward probing issues of intellectual perplexity, and also humorously suggesting approaches to phenomena such as gravity and ideas about the meaning of objects. By representing things in a state of transition, from solid to volatile, from unit to fragment, from static to movement, she shows how every inanimate object has its own existence: a past, present, and potential that goes beyond its physical appearance at any given moment. This book features new, never-before-published work that has recently been exhibited in Torino, Italy.
