"I resurrect things that have been killed off... My work is all about the potential of materials even when it looks like they've lost all possibilities"

"I am concerned with ambivalence, with opposites, with inhaling and exhaling, things falling and things rising, things disintegrating and coming together...with killing things off, as if they existed in cartoon comics, and then resurrecting them, so that one set of references is negated as a new one takes its place."
Cornelia Parker takes remains and suspends them into space mimicking their original purpose and creates a visceral contrast between chaos and composure.
