Cornelia Parker - Black Flowers - 2016
On 17th June 2016 an iconic new building opened on the south side of Tate Modern. In support and celebration of this occasion Tate invited a diverse and international group of artists to create limited edition artworks. Cornelia Parker generously donated the limited edition, Black Flowers, 2016.
For some years Cornelia Parker’s work has been concerned with formalising things beyond our control, containing the volatile and making it into something that is quiet and contemplative like the ‘eye of the storm’. She is fascinated with processes in the world that mimic cartoon ‘deaths’ – steamrollering, shooting full of holes, falling from cliffs and explosions. Through a combination of visual and verbal allusions her work triggers cultural metaphors and personal associations, which allow the viewer to witness the transformation of the most ordinary objects into something compelling and extraordinary.
