Cornelia Parker is well known for her large-scale, often site-specific, installations. Her wide-ranging practice, chiefly in sculpture and installation, touches on the fragility of human experience and is rich with visual allusions and literary innuendo. The artist's dynamic projects have included blowing up a shed, steamrolling musical instruments, exploding a firework made from a pulverized meteorite, and suspending charcoal taken from a church struck by lightning. Her work is in many private and public collections worldwide, including the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Parker's installation Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) is The Met's 2016 Roof Garden Commission.
