Imagine… DANGER! Cornelia Parker
BBC One, Tuesday 19 July, 22:45
Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce the broadcast of a new documentary exploring the work of Cornelia Parker, one of Britain’s most original and inventive artists. Often using found materials, Parker creates beauty from acts of destruction – an exploded shed, squashed silver objects, or the charred remnants of a church suspended in time. In 2016 Parker embarked on the most high-profile commission of her career: the resulting work entitled Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) is now installed on the roof of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Alan Yentob follows the artist’s creative process in a film that sees her delve deep into America’s history, cinema and art, as well as her own personal past.

Perhaps (An Investigation Outside the Laws of Thought)
New Commission in the Brayford Pool, Lincoln, UK
8 July – 8 September 2016
Launch: Thursday 7th July 5.30 – 7.30pm with a Q&A with Monica Narula of Raqs aboard a boat on the Brayford Pool
Two arcs rise and fall by the water of the Brayford Pool, facing Lincoln University. Coated by a sheer reflective surface, the two arcs mirror each other, the water and their environs, creating an illusion of a fold in space, a thickening of air. The arcs are also portals. And as portals, they recall George Boole’s ‘logic gates’ – conceptual sites of entry and exit for answers to questions that can end in either a yes or a no answer – which he first spelt out in his ‘Investigation into the Laws of Thought’. Today, logic gates, are the building blocs of computer programming.
