    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.
