Cornelia Parker

Cornelia Parker, born 1956, is a British artist renown for her sculpture and installations. Her 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. Represented by Frith Street Gallery, she was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 1997.

Works from her two 'Meteorite Landing' series produced in association with The Multiple Store were exhibited in The Map Is Not the Territory series of exhibitions at England & Co. These series of 'meteorite landings', mark the spots where the everyday meets the extra-terrestrial, and were made by heating a 400 year old iron meteorite until glowing hot and then using it to burn iconic locations on maps of London and the USA.
