Guardian Video: Cornelia Parker
this interview produced for The Guardian. Although we did the trip in a day, Nico Wasserman, on camera duties, and I spent several hours with Cornelia and her exhibition, in which a beautifully muted collection of 'avoided objects' off-set the grandiosity of the show's centrepiece: 'Perpetual Canon'. This is a gigantic arrangement of vertically hung brass instruments, each stamped on by a 25 tonne press that Cornelia says "removed their puff." It's a fantastic exhibition and I hope this interview gives some insight into the humour, connections and conversations that are played out amongst Cornelia's assortment of objects and installations.
