Parker is perhaps best known for Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View, in which she blew a garden shed to smithereens. She suspended the charred remains from the ceiling, around a single lightbulb, flinging outwards strange shadows. The result feels eternal: a split-second preserved perpetually – creation grown out of destruction.
This April, Parker comes to Frith Street Gallery to present a series of new video works exploring America, made at the time of the presidential election, alongside
a number of other films and recent work.
We don't know quite what to expect, but we are sure it will be good. Whether Parker is wrapping a Rodin sculpture in string, asking Tilda Swinton to lie in state at the Serpentine or blowing up garden structures, she always manages to thrill.
