Artist Cornelia Parker OBE RA joins us in conversation to discuss her printmaking practice for our annual London Original Print Fair (LOPF) lecture.
To coincide with the launch of her latest editions at the LOPF, one of today’s most renowned artists, Cornelia Parker, speaks candidly about what inspires her and her printmaking practice, in conversation with Jan Dalley, Arts Editor of The Financial Times.
Cornelia Parker is well known for her large-scale, often site-specific, installations. Often there is an apocalyptic tone to her work, but Parker also demonstrates a concern with the more insidious effects of global warming and consumerism.
Parker works in a variety of media and has collaborated with institutions such as HM Customs & Excise, Royal Armouries, Madame Tussauds and Victoria & Albert Museum. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1997 and appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2010.
