Exhibition at Tate Britain

An exhibition of large-scale installations, films, paintings and drawings by Cornelia Ann Parker, one of Britain's best-known and most recognised artists, will take place at Tate Britain from 19 May to 16 October.

Using various objects, she constructs a kind of picture that makes us think about the nature of things, our relationship with the world around us and human life. Her tool is an observation of the world, transforming ordinary, uncomplicated objects and phenomena into avant-garde art.

Parker maintains that the main generator of ideas is intuition, which simply assembles the objects into a seemingly illogical and messy picture. One of her best known works is Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View, 1991. A barn was blown up to create it, and the mangled pieces of wood and metal were used for the installation.

Additional meaning is born from the shadows on the walls of the hall formed by the light of the lamp. In this way, Cornelia Parker tried to give the ruined object a new life.

Another famous installation is Thirty Pieces of Silver. She suspended pressed silver objects in thirty circles half a metre from the floor: they have lost their function and taken on their original meaning a piece of metal.

The exhibition includes several immersive works: War Room, 2015, Magna Carta, 2015, as well as drawings in innovative techniques, prints and photographs. It is worth noting that some of the works will remain in the museum's exhibition.

The exhibition will take place at Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG from 19 May to 16 October.

Cornelia Ann Parker is an English artist. In 1995 Cornelia took part in a performance of Katherine Mathilda The Maybe. Cornelia Parker has arranged glass boxes around the gallery with such relics belonging to famous historical figures as a pillow and blanket from Sigmund Freud's sofa, Bessie Wallis Simpson's skates, Charles Dickens' fountain pen and Queen Victoria's stocking.
