Cornelia Parker’s Transitional Object (PsychoBarn), The Roof Garden Commission at the Met in New York until 31/Oct

Image credit: Caitlin Ochs for The New York Times.

A large-scale sculpture by Cornelia Parker, inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper and by two emblems of American architecture—the classic red barn and the Bates family’s sinister mansion from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film Psycho—has been unveiled as the fourth annual installation of site-specific works commissioned for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Nearly 30 feet high, The Roof Garden Commission: Cornelia Parker, Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) is fabricated from a deconstructed red barn and seems at first to be a genuine house, but is in fact a scaled-down structure consisting of two facades propped up from behind with scaffolding. Simultaneously authentic and illusory, the sculpture evokes the psychological associations embedded in architectural spaces. Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) is set atop The Met, high above Central Park—providing an unusual contrast to the Manhattan skyline. It will be on view to the public until October 31, 2016.

Cornelia Parker’s Rorschach at SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia until June 12th

The SCAD Museum of Art presents “Rorschach (Accidental IV)”, an installation of 70 pieces of flattened antique silver, seeming to levitate just above the gallery floor by Cornelia Parker. Early in her career, the British sculptor avoided the familiar associations of representational objects by creating purely abstract works. In the “Rorschach” series Parker reverses the process and achieves abstraction by removing recognizable items from their fundamental usage or meanings.

“Rorschach” was inspired by Hermann Rorschach, a Swiss psychiatrist who developed a technique of psychoanalysis utilizing inkblots. Ink is placed onto a piece of paper, folded in half, and when opened produces a symmetrical pattern. Rorschach prompted his subjects to make mental associations based on the ink designs, and these were interpreted as direct projections of the subconscious.

Cornelia Parker: Magna Carta (An Embroidery) on display at the Whitworth, Manchester until 1 November 2015

Cornelia Parker’s Magna Carta (An Embroidery) is now on display in Manchester at the Whitworth after being on display earlier on at the British Library that initially commissioned the work in partnership with the Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford  and in association with the Embroiderers’ Guild, Fine Cell Work, Hand & Lock and the Royal School of Needlework.

A major new artwork by the acclaimed British artist Cornelia Parker, Magna Carta (An Embroidery) celebrates the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta in 2015. Fabricated by many hands, it replicates in stitch the entire Wikipedia article on Magna Carta as it appeared on the document’s 799th anniversary. Hand embroidered by more than 200 people, a large part was stitched by prisoners supervised by Fine Cell Work and members of the Embroiderers Guild. Other contributors, selected to represent a cross-section of society, range from barons, baronesses, MPs, and lawyers, to human rights advocates and activists.
