EXHIBITION | Cornelia Parker: Perpetual Canon

  • Turner Contemporary Rendezvous Margate, Kent, CT9 1HG UK (map)

Perpetual Canon is an installation made up of sixty flattened instruments once belonging to a brass band.

Cornelia Parker is known for her sculptures and installations that explore the potential of matter, often subjecting commonplace objects to processes such as crushing, wrapping, exploding or dropping. Here, a collection of compressed trumpets, cornets, tubas and other instruments are silenced. In Parker’s words: ‘the band may be winded, but they’re not down and out: they’re still marching.’
