Neither From Nor Towards, 1992,

Cornelia Parker, Arts Council Collection, Hayward Gallery, London

In ‘Neither From Nor Towards’ the brick remnants of

an eroded house hang suspended in stilled animation in

the work of British artist Cornelia Parker, who was nominated

for the Turner prize in 1997. Her work often depicts a moment

in time, which has been halted. In ‘Neither From Nor Towards’,

the bricks are resonant with their previous life, reminding us

of the passage of time over which we have no control. Parker

rescues and reinterprets the ordinary, which is transformed

by the gallery setting into something poetic and extraordinary.
