Cornelia Parker I So Admire You

Cornelia Parker breathless
I was watching a programme last week about Modern Art and the sham that it has become but there are artists still around that don't jump on that bandwagon and one of them is Cornelia Parker. I love her Breathless piece exhibited in the ceiling of the V&A in London,
Cornelia Parker thirty pieces of silver
Thirty Pieces of Silver and
Cornelia Parker alter ego
her Alter Ego Posh Coffee, Poor Coffee.
Imagine how difficult it is to squash silver and keep its beautiful detail.

I love that ceiling! Modern art is not all bad, some are very cleverly executed...

I like the wittiness of these pieces.I didn't watch the programme, thought it would be too depressing!

I love the simplicity of the concept.
Take antique silver & Squash it.
Take antique silver & Suspend it.

it MUST be difficult to do it
so elegantly.
