London Lit Festival 13: Cornelia Parker

Cornelia Parker is one of the most profound and poetic artists working in Britain today. Her wide-ranging practice, chiefly in sculpture and installation, touches on the fragility of human experience.

Exploring everything from ghosts and gravity to relics and the unconscious, she transforms everyday, ordinary objects into compelling works of art.

Parker's projects - which have included blowing up a shed, steamrolling musical instruments and exploding a firework made from a pulverised meteorite - have captured the public imagination since she first came to prominence in the 1990s.

In this special session she talks to the psychoanalyst Darian Leader about her extraordinary career.
