This is a welcome, indeed long overdue survey of the work of one of the most interesting artists practicing today. Parker, while making pieces that are deeply conceptual, also manages to produce work which is utterly engaging in its own right. Even stripped of all explanation and context she can load the most prosaic objects with fascination, allure and fresh identity. Objects as prosaic as tea-trays, a man's suit or a coin become startling and magical in her hands. That one later learns of strange histories, arcane procedures and deep intentions serves only to enrich already compelling material. Parker forces us to rethink our relationship with matter, artifacts and situations by imbuing them with charged, loaded contradiction and paradox. Thorough, fully illustrated and accompanied by an excellent essay by Yoko Ono, this is an essential book for anyone interested in Parker's extraordinary work.
