Cornelia Parker is an internationally acclaimed sculptor and installation artist best recognized for her unique subject matter and large-scale works. Parker’s works are presented in various global art events as the 10th Gwangju Biennale and the 16th Sydney Biennale and in 1997 she was short-listed for the Turner Prize. Her work often features found objects used in everyday life, often presented in new contexts, bringing with them a unique perspective of the past, present and future.
While Parker only minimally alters these ordinary objects, she draws upon their historical value by presenting them in the context of art, juxtaposed next to other artwork. “Brilliant Ideas” introduces Cornelia Parker and her world of ambiguous objects that continue to intrigue and captivate.
