Summary

Material transformation is a pervasive theme in Cornelia Parker's latest exhibition, which opened with a firework display created by Parker and Konstantin Novoselov, who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010 for his co-discovery of graphene. According to reviewer Deborah Dixon, the pieces range from playful, to reflective, and combine the sense of wonder and excitement experienced by scientists when new materials emerge with an artist's interpretation of the possibilities these materials create.
