Cornelia Parker was born in 1956 in Cheshire, England. She is one of the most original and inventive artists working in Britain today. Her wide-ranging practice, mainly in sculpture and installation, is rich with literary and visual allusions. She often works with found objects, creating art which allows viewers to see the world in new, surprising ways. She explores everything from gravity and ghosts to memory and unconscious e.g Cold Dark Matter: Ann Exploded View is the restored three-dimensional volume of a garden shed exploded by the British Army. The surviving fragments, suspended from the ceiling and lit by a single bulb create a dramatic effect. In search of inspiration and collaborators, Cornelia has travelled from the crown-of-thorn workshops of Bethlehem to the funeral parlours of Sao Paulo. Cornelia has been commissioned to do the prestigious roof top installation at the Met in New York in May 2016.
