Event description

Description

Turner Prize-nominee Cornelia Parker RA OBE is one of the UK’s foremost artists. Known across the world for her groundbreaking installations and sculpture, this intimate exhibition features Parker’s most recent work – a series of largescale photogravures and Fox Talbot's Articles of Glass (2017) which has never been shown outside London.

For some years Cornelia Parker’s work has been concerned with formalising things beyond our control, containing the volatile and making it into something that is quiet and contemplative like the ‘eye of the storm’. She is fascinated with processes in the world that mimic cartoon ‘deaths’ – steamrollering, shooting full of holes, falling from cliffs and explosions. Through a combination of visual and verbal allusions her work triggers cultural metaphors and personal associations, which allow the viewer to witness the transformation of the most ordinary objects into something compelling and extraordinary.

This exhibition is part of Women with Vision. A ticket to Women with Vision grants you access to all of the galleries and associated exhibitions. Visit our website for admission prices and opening times.

Please note, Cornelia Parker: One Day This Glass Will Break and Anne Redpath RA RWA RSA do not run concurrently.

A Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition from Southbank Centre, London.
