Product story

Half stage set, half sculpture, Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) was first shown on the roof of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, against the skyline of Central Park.

With over 50 colour illustrations including installation shots, this publication also investigates the resonances of now siting the work in London. 

Cornelia Parker is well known for her installations, including Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View (1991), a reconstruction of an exploded shed which forms part of Tate's collection.
