Cornelia Parker's first major survey at Tate Britain
Cornelia Parker’s monumental, thought-provoking works demand to be seen in person. Known as one of Britain’s most beloved and acclaimed contemporary artists, Cornelia Parker reconfigures domestic objects to question our relationship with the world. Using transformation, play and storytelling, the artist addresses important issues of our time, such as violence, ecology or human rights. The exhibition brings together some of her most dramatic installations under one roof, such as “Thirty Pieces of Silver” (1988–9) and “Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View” (1991); the immersive “War Room” (2015) and “Magna Carta” (2015), her monumental collective embroidery, as well as her films and a wealth of her innovative drawings, prints and photographs. Some works spill out beyond the confines of the exhibition and infiltrate the permanent collection, in dialogue with the historical works they reference.
