One Day This Glass Will Break Cornelia Parker is one of Britain’s leading contemporary artists. Best known for large-scale installation and sculpture, her diverse practice also includes drawing, photography, film and printmaking. 'One Day This Glass Will Break', is an exhibition of twenty large-scale photogravures from three experimental series: Fox Talbot’s Articles of Glass (2017); One Day This Glass Will Break (2015) and Thirty Pieces of Silver (exposed) (2015). Investigating the possibilities of photogravure, the three series, which are brought together for the first time in this exhibition, explore the artist’s fascination with the physical properties of objects, materials and their histories. Photogravure is a printmaking process developed in the 1850s that produces etchings with the tone and detail of a photograph through the exposure of a photographic positive film onto a copper plate. The works in the three series capture the shadows of translucent objects - each one a spectral still life of found objects including early glassware, a shattered lightbulb and melting ice cubes.
