Biography of Cornelia Parker
Sculptor and installation artist Cornelia Parker (born 1956 in Cheshire, UK) has blown up garden sheds, installed the charred remains of churches in galleries, crushed and steamrolled objects, and even exhibited a sleeping Tilda Swinton inside a vitrine. She is an artist enthralled by processes and metaphors. Her work resurrects and transforms ordinary occurrences into compelling poetic moments that captivate and awe-inspire.
The artist Cornelia Parker is represented by galleries in London, Geneva and Barcelona, and has been widely exhibited from the Serpentine Gallery in London to the Museo de Arte de Lima. Her work is represented in many international collections including the Arts Council England; Tate Gallery, London; MOMA, New York; the Henry Moore Foundation; and the Yale Center for British Art.
