The selection of Parker’s works in this show, both old and new, demonstrates how the artist returns to and revives an understanding of what it means to live in a world that is shaped by power structures and underpinned by violence. The overarching narrative here is one of Parker’s enduring relevance over the decades. She has an awareness of physical tension and a sense of the tragicomic, and is able to approach dark and complex ideas with humour – making her conceptual works eminently approachable.”
