Silver and Glass: Cornelia Parker and PhotographySilver and Glass: Cornelia Parker and Photography

Published by Hayward Gallery Publishing.
Text by Roger Malbert, Antonia Shaw. Interview by David Campany.

Silver and Glass is the first publication to explore the application and influence of photography in the art of the popular British artist Cornelia Parker (born 1956). The book is illustrated by works from across Parker's career, including those which arose from her investigations into the photogravure. Inspired by the 19th-century photographic pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot, Parker combined two of his early techniques—solar prints and the photogravure—to create a new hybrid form of print by exposing translucent three-dimensional objects to ultraviolet light.

Presented here are a collection of 20 large-scale prints from three experimental series: Fox Talbot's Articles of Glass (2017), One Day This Glass Will Break (2015) and Thirty Pieces of Silver (Exposed) (2015). A wide range of Parker's sculpture and documentary photography is also included.

Cornelia Parker: Transitional Object (PsychoBarn)Cornelia Parker: Transitional Object (PsychoBarn)

Published by Royal Academy of Arts.
Text by Darian Leader, Sheena Wagstaff.

In September 2018, Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) by Cornelia Parker (born 1956) is recreated in the courtyard at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. This meticulous and unsettling installation—first shown on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, against the skyline of Central Park—is half stage set, half sculpture. The work, which draws on archetypal images of American culture such as the red barn and the infamous Bates motel from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, will now be seen against a backdrop of Burlington House’s neoclassical buildings. Parker is internationally admired for her installations, including Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View (1991), a reconstruction of an exploded shed. Generously illustrated with supporting imagery and installation shots, this book comprises a conversation with the artist and a text on the work’s installation in London.

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 clichª, 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.
