Cornelia Parker was born in Cheshire, in 1956. Parker's art is about destruction, resurrection and reconfiguration. Demonstrating the importance of process, she frequently transforms objects by using seemingly violent techniques such as shooting, exploding, squashing, cutting and burning. Her first major solo exhibition took place in Birmingham in 1988. Since then, she has exhibited all over the world. Recent exhibitions include Cristea Roberts Gallery, London (2020); Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, (2019); The Palace of Westminster (2018) and Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2016). Parker's work is held in numerous collections worldwide. She was awarded an OBE and elected to the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 2010. Parker was the UK's official Election Artist for the 2017 general election, making several artworks that are now housed in The Parliamentary Art Collection. In May 2022 Parker will be the subject of a career-spanning survey at Tate Britain, London.

Terms and Conditions: Please note all works will be available for collection from Wednesday 17 November 2021 at Freedom from Torture offices, 111 Isledon Road, London N7 7JW.
