Cornelia Parker is a London-based sculptor and installation artist internationally recognised for the multi-layered irony of her work which transforms ordinary objects into the extraordinary through a combination of visual and verbal allusions. In this lecture she discusses a number of installations, commissions and collaborations that she has made over the last decade. By detailing the specific histories of the objects she uses, Parker explores the consequences of (re)use in relation to notions of culture, memory and resonance.
NB: Questions from the audience are difficult to hear during Q & A.
