Cornelia Parker: Brontean Abstracts
Library Shelf Location 18.PARK
Publication Date 2006
Description In 2006 the museum exhibited new work by major British artist Cornelia Parker. Brontean Abstracts was the result of time spent by the artist researching in the museum collections. Cornelia Parker was interested in exploring the underside of the Brontes' monumentality and this remarkable body of new work offers new perspectives on the myths and stereotypes that have been built around the Brontes and challenge our preconceptions about them. The Brontes' items were examined in new ways, to explore marks left unconsciously - the pin pricks in Charlotte's pin cushion, ink blots on blotting paper and the scribblings out on manuscripts - as well microscopic views of Charlotte's quill pen and analysis conducted on samples of their hair. The series of works were exhibited in the period rooms of the museum between 16 September - 31 December 2006.
