cornelia parker

Subconscious of a Monument, 2002
Soil excavated from beneath the Leaning Tower of Pisa and wire

Cornelia Parker (Difference and Excess in Contemporary Art. The Visibility of Women's Practice): I do feel women think differently, in a more round-the-house kind of way. I never want to go there too much in discussing it, but the whole idea of formal issues to do with the lump or the anti-lump is somewhat gendered. The idea of installation art is quite feminine. It’s a feminine art because it is inclusive and you walk into it; it’s not going to the centre just to look at this lump in the middle. And I think the air around, the leaves on the trees and blades of grass, this fluid, atmospheric sense of the relations and exchanges between things, is a model of the way I think, and I think it’s quite feminine way of thinking. It’s always this anti-centre thing.
