About Regarded internationally for her complex, darkly humorous, ironic style Cornelia Parker’s work is represented in many international collections including Arts Council England, Tate Gallery, London, Henry Moore Foundation, British Museum, Yale Center for British Art, USA and MOMA, New York. She was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 1997. Recent solo shows include Frith Street Gallery (2013), ‘The Unseen’ at the Ghangzhou Triennial (2012). ‘Rorschach (Accidental III)’ at d’Amelio Terras Gallery, NYC; ‘Doubtful Sound’ at Baltic, Gateshead (2010); ‘Chomskian Abstract’, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2008).
Cornelia Parker is fascinated by meteorites. She has ground and incinerated them in exploding rockets in firework displays - works that almost re-enact their falling, she says. She has been the shadowy presence behind a number of mysterious meteorite landings in Copenhagen, Boston, Birmingham, Milan and Edinburgh.
For this series Cornelia Parker originally created six meteorite ‘landings” (three “hits’, three ‘misses”) made by heating a 400 year old iron meteorite until glowing hot and then using it to burn maps of the American South.
Some copies of three locations are still available.
