The print: Truth to Materials, 2013, is a black and white digital pigment print on Hahnemühle 308 gsm Photo Rag Paper, 272mm x 192mm Cornelia Parker is one of the most original and inventive artists working in Britain today. This comprehensively illustrated book is the first full survey to trace the development of her art from the late 1970s to the present. Her wide-ranging practice, chiefly in sculpture and installation, touches on the fragility of human experience and is rich with visual and literary allusions. Exploring everything from ghosts and gravity to relics and the unconscious, she transforms everyday, ordinary objects into compelling works of art. Parker’s projects – which have included blowing up a shed, steamrolling musical instruments and sending meteorites back into space – have captured the public imagination since she first came to prominence. In this book the artist takes the reader on a personal tour through her works. Beginning with the small-scale sculptures she made as a student, it includes her work in lead and plaster, silver and gold, alongside drawings, photographs, video pieces and installations. Parker’s engaging commentaries describe her adventures with the unlikely institutions that have helped create her art, from the British Army to the Royal Mint, as well as her wide-ranging travels, which have taken her from the funeral parlours of São Paulo to the crown-of-thorn workshops of Bethlehem. Organised chronologically, the book features thematic essays by Iwona Blazwick, contextualizing the artist’s work and pointing to her key influences and interests, from abstraction and performance to archaeology and psychoanalysis. The book features a foreword by Yoko Ono and an introduction by curator Bruce Ferguson. Supplemented by an up-to-date biography, bibliography and exhibition history, this is the definitive book on one of the most popular artists of our time. Iwona Blazwick is Director of the Whitechapel Gallery. She is series editor of Documents of Contemporary Art and author of Faces in the Crowd: Picturing Modern Life from Manet to Today and Tate Modern: A Handbook. She has contributed to monographs and exhibition catalogues on the work of artists including Damien Hirst, Rachel Whiteread, Ilya Kabakov, Alex Katz and Lawrence Weiner. Yoko Ono is an artist, musician, filmmaker and peace activist. A member of the Fluxus movement in the 1960s, her work as a conceptual and performance artist has gained her international renown. In 2002 she launched the LennonOno Grant for Peace for artists living in conflict zones. Bruce W. Ferguson is a curator, art critic and Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at The American University in Cairo. He has curated exhibitions internationally, including for the Louisiana Museum, Copenhagen, the Barbican Art Gallery, London, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and the Istanbul, Santa Fe, São Paulo, Sydney and Venice biennials.

    An excellent compilation of an artist who thinks outside the box. The explanations of her work, alongside pictures of it, helped me to understand and appreciate just went into the making of each piece. Stimulating, like going to a museum after hours.

    An excellent monograph of an excellent, innovative artist. Of course, the nature of Parker's art, which are often installations, are best to be experienced first hand, but still, this book colourfully shows the scope of her work and the underlying themes which underpin it.
