Cornelia Parker’s multiple for The Multiple Store
Following a first series of meteorite landings on London locations in 1998, for her second series for The Multiple Store (‘METEORITE LANDS… IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE: The American series’, 2001), Cornelia Parker produced a second series of meteorite landings. These consist of ‘hits’ and ‘misses’ made by heating a 400 year old iron meteorite until glowing hot and then using it to burn the map at six mythic locations in of the American South.
Of the six locations of this second series, only three are still available;
Missing: Waco (Texas); Roswell (New Mexico) [SOLD OUT]; Truth or Consequences (New Mexico) [SOLD OUT]
Hitting: Bagdad (Louisiana); Bethlehem (North Carolina); Paris (Texas) [SOLD OUT]
With Liquid Koan Liliane Lijn’s multiple for The Multiple Store, has used translucent polyester resin to propose a paradox: layers of colour appear distinct and separate, or merge one into another, depending on the angle at which they are seen. The cone is seen as both solid and fluid within the medium of light. Liquid Koan is available to order on this website.
