This fully illustrated catalogue accompanies "Never Endings"; the first survey of new and recent work by Cornelia Parker in the UK for 10 years. Characteristically ambitious in both form and content, the exhibition consists of installation, sculptural pieces and video. Alongside well established works, such as the dramatic "Heart of Darkness", an installation involving charred timber resulting from a fierce forest fire that happened in Florida in 2004, the exhibition includes several striking new works constituting a significant development in the artist's practice; "Killing Time" and "Chomskian Abstract".The latter is video that features the distinguished writer and philosopher Noam Chomsky responding to Parker's questions on a possible global environmental catastrophe. His answers are rich with astute observations on the nature of democracy vis a vis consumerism, Middle Eastern politics and the role of fear in a post-Cold War world. The publication includes text by Sadie Plant and a transcription of "Chomskian Abstract".
